VIDEO: Fokobo's 45-yard NextGen Series wonderstrike vs Tottenham Hotspur

A video has surfaced of the wondergoal which knocked Tottenham Hotspur out of the NextGen Series.

As three English teams fly out to take part in the NextGen Series finals this weekend, one club's under-19 squad will feel particularly disappointed. 

Arsenal, Chelsea and Aston Villa make up three of the last four, and Tottenham came so close to completing the set, only to fall to Sporting Lisbon.

The quarter-final was held last week, with Spurs battling back from being 3-1 down to draw 3-3 in normal time and take it to extra-time.

Sadly for them Sporting are a special side, having knocked Liverpool out with ease in the last 16, and what came next was quite stunning.

Midfielder Fabrice Fokobo ran onto a loose ball 45-yards out to unleash an unstoppable shot which sailed straight into the Tottenham net.

It was the extra-time breakthrough they needed, with Sporting going onto win 5-3.

Fokobo yesterday unsurprisingly described it as 'the best goal I have ever scored', and for those who have not had the fortune to see it as yet, now is your opportunity to check it out:
