New York Cosmos' Emmanuel Ledesma scores Cantona-style goal

It may have come on the very last day of the month, but Emmanuel Ledesma's debut goal for New York Cosmos has been voted the club's goal of the month for April.

The former Middlesbrough midfielder scored the only goal of the game to seal a 1-0 win over San Francisco Deltas on Sunday afternoon on his maiden appearance for Cosmos.

A sumptuous chip, and eerily reminiscent of Eric Cantona's masterful lob against Sunderland at Old Trafford way back in 1996.

A fine, fine goal but an even better celebration, even if we do say so ourselves.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
