Spurs midfielder's stunning strike against Liverpool tops eight-goal shortlist

Victor Wanyama has won the Carling Goal of the Month award for February.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder's fierce strike of a bouncing ball from outside the box helped earn a 2-2 draw at Liverpool on 4 February.

"That was one of my best goals I've ever scored," he said. "I just reacted before the Liverpool players.

"I thought I'd just let it go because the ball was bouncing and I didn't want to think too much. And I just let it fly."

The Kenyan's strike was one of eight nominated for the award, along with those of Danilo, Mario Lemina, Jose Izquierdo (twice), Mohamed Salah, Sergio Aguero and Adam Smith.

It won from the combined votes of a panel of experts and from the public, who picked their favourite via the Carling Tap and Carling website.
