A lovely goal from Stu Holden’s younger brother

Dirty Tackle

Euan Holden, younger brother of Bolton and U.S. midfielder Stu Holden, pulled off a beauty of a goal to give Stockport County their first win of the season in the Blue Square Premier after getting relegated from the Football League last season. In a match against Kettering Town last week, the 23-year-old defender/midfielder slipped through a pair of defenders and spun around a third before finding the back of the net from an angle to break the scoreless deadlock in the 60th minute.

Of course, Conference defenders aren't exactly the world's best, but it was still a nice goal and it shows why Scotland manager Craig Levein has been tracking Euan's progress (the Holden boys were born in Scotland before moving to the U.S.). No word on whether Stu has forwarded this video to Juergen Klinsmann yet, though.
