Fraizer Campbell – SUNDERLAND vs. Norwich City (January 2012)

On the face of it, Sunderland’s 3-0 victory over Norwich City in January 2012 looks like a routine scoreline but it produced one of the best goals of the entire campaign from Fraizer Campbell.

Just less than 20 minutes had been played when the forward who had struggled with injuries over the past 18 months reminded everyone of the qualities he’d first displayed in the youth ranks at Manchester United.

Campbell received the ball after James McClean had been stopped in trying to shoot himself. He controlled the ball superbly, allowing the ball to sit up before providing a delicious, looping volley on his second touch into the top corner of the net beyond John Ruddy.

It a moment richly deserved for a player who has been very unfortunate to not quite fulfil the talent that was clearly evident at such a young age.
