WATCH: Andone’s remarkable solo goal cooks rivals Palace

NLSKqpR_5w9F
Brighton's Florin Andone races past the Crystal Palace defense, then splits two defenders with a shot to give his side a 3-0 lead.

It wouldn’t surprise us if Florin Andone was still running around the Amex Stadium after his industrious goal in the M23 Derby.

“Andone’s third was special,” said Brighton and Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton. “It showed real desire.”

No kidding. Brighton’s 25-year-old Romanian scored for the second-straight match, and his goal was a fantastic feat.

Having bagged a goal against Huddersfield Town on Saturday, Andone chased down a ball few men would’ve kept after on Tuesday.

Andone cooked James Tomkins for pace, then cut back to lose him before using Mamadou Sakho as a screen to shoot past Wayne Hennessey from an acute angle.

It’s exhausting just to watch.
