An amputee footballer has shown that you don't need two legs to score a remarkable goal.

Jay Tregakiss was on the books of Man City, but lost his left leg as a result of a rare form of cancer.

However, he now plays with the help of crutches in the England Amputee Football Association (EAFA) National League, and scored a phenomenal solo goal in the Football for All event in Switzerland.


Now there is talk he may be a contender for the Puskas Award, which is awarded to the footballer who scores the "most beautiful" goal of the year.
