Sotirio’s screamer takes out Hyundai A-League Goal of the Month for January


Hyundai A-League fans have voted Western Sydney Wanderers attacker Jaushua Sotirio’s stunning strike against Melbourne City as the Goal of the Month for January.

Sotirio’s curling effort past a stranded Eugene Galekovic gave the Wanderers a 3-2 lead early in the second half against City at AAMI Park, before the hosts scored twice late to win 4-3.

But the 23-year-old’s strike will live long in the memory, showing his ability from distance with his trusty left foot.

Sotirio’s goal captured almost half of the vote, with 48% of fans rating his strike as the best of the month.

Sydney FC skipper Alex Brosque’s classy chip against Central Coast Mariners was second with 21%, while Melbourne Victory striker Ola Toivonen’s wicked free-kick in the Big Blue was third with 18% of the vote.
