Keigan’s, from Londonderry, Northern Ireland, amazing lobs contributed to his team’s massive 6-2 success over the Celtic Legends – a team which consisted of former professional footballers.

After stunning the rival keeper with his formidable shots, Keigan went back to kiss the centre of the pitch in an emotional celebration.

The Oxford Bulls, a team made up of young players with Down Syndrome, played the Celtic Legends as part of a charity event called the Soccer Sixes tournament held at the Brandywell Stadium in Derry, Northern Ireland.

“When Keigan scored those two lobs we were obviously bursting with pride!”
