Check out this magnificent strike by Leicester City’s James Justin in the Foxes third round FA Cup tie against Stoke City.

Justin gave the visitors the lead in the 34th minute after a stunning strike from outside the box which left Stoke keeper Josef Bursik with no chance of stopping it.

The 22-year-old picked the ball up on the left wing before beating two defenders and curling the ball around a third straight into the Stoke top corner leaving the Goalkeeper rooted to his spot.

This years third round of the FA Cup has been very different to others after several outbreaks of Covid-19 in various clubs forcing some teams to play youth squads.

Aston Villa were a team hit particularly hard after a serious outbreak of the virus was detected at the club with several positive results coming back from first-team players and staff.

Derby County were hard hit also and were knocked out of the competition by Chorley FC after the entire first-team and staff were forced to self-isolate following a Covid-19 outbreak forcing the club to field an inexperienced, youth team.
