Insane 60m goal labelled better than Beckham's

Luton Town footballer Olly Lee's audacious long-range goal was the undisputed highlight of his side's 7-0 thrashing of Cambridge United in England's League Two.

Not even a Danny Hylton hat-trick for the Hatters managed to steal the headlines away from Lee, whose 60m stunner conjured memories of David Beckham's famous halfway goal for Manchester United.

Lee intercepted a Cambridge pass just outside his own box and after taking one look up the pitch, decided to launch the ball from well inside his own half.

The Luton man was several metres behind the centre circle when he hit the astonishing shot, which sailed over the head of a hapless Cambridge keeper David Forde.

If comments from Luton boss Nathan Jones are anything to go by, Lee was probably pretty grateful his speculative effort found the back of the net.

"We work very, very hard on our counter-attacking and our structure and he should've played it to Danny Hylton, because Hylton made a great run and he should've played it to him," Jones said.

"Hylton wasn't happy and initially I wasn't until I saw the ball sailing over the keeper.

"They showed [David] Beckham's one for 10 years, they're probably still showing it - that's as good, if not better."

Aside from Lee's long-range wonder goal and Hylton's hat-trick, goals to Dan Potts and a double to Olly Lee's brother Elliot completed the 7-0 rout to lift Luton into second on the table.
