West Ham defender Winston Reid comments on Matt Phillips wondergoal on Twitter

Winston Reid and Libor Kozak

The QPR winger hit an absolute beauty against Crystal Palace this weekend.

It was yet another day to forget for QPR this afternoon, as they were defeated 3-1 by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Goals from Wilfried Zaha, James McArthur and Joel Ward did the business in the first-half, as QPR seem to be drifting toward relegation back to the Championship.

But while it was a miserable day in general, there were some pluses to take from the game. Well … one at least. That would have to be the magnificent strike from Matt Phillips in the 83rd minute. The winger struck a venomous effort at goal from 40 yards out which left Palace stopper Julian Speroni with no chance.

It was a strike that had Twitter twitching, including a West Ham defender. Winston Reid, who recently signed a new deal at West Ham, was unavailable for The Hammers game with Arsenal this afternoon.

The Kiwi centre-back was quick to praise the goal, posting this on Twitter immediately after the ball hit the back of the Palace net:

Not even Reid could have done anything to prevent this strike from hitting the back of the net.
