League One’s Bristol Rovers shocked Championship side Cardiff City in the EFL Cup on Thursday night, with Chris Lines’ wonder-strike in extra-time sending the Pirates through to the second round.
Midfielder Lines scored the only goal of the game on 115 minutes at the Memorial Stadium, launching a rocket from well outside the box which arrowed into the top corner…
GOAL! Wow, wow, wow. Chris Lines smashes a thunderous drive into the top corner!

What a strike!
The goal sees Rovers progress to the second stage of the competition, where’ll they face Antonio Conte’s Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
