Waterford's French midfielder Bastien Hery scored a peach last night

The celebration is nearly as good as the finish too.

WATERFORD’S 2-0 WIN over St Patrick’s Athletic was unfortunately on too late to make last night’s edition of Soccer Republic.

However, after reports emerged that a goal of the season contender had been scored at the RSC, the video of Bastien Hery’s strike has just surfaced thanks to RTÉ.

The French midfielder, a close-season signing from Limerick, comes on to a loose ball to drill past Pat’s keeper Barry Murphy from all of 30 yards — before celebrating with some air guitar and a spot of hip-shaking.

Defender Kenny Browne had already headed home the opener at that point.

Undoubtedly a super finish from Hery but we’d argue it’s not quite in the same bracket as a couple of last year’s GOTS nominees.

2017 First Division champions Waterford have enjoyed a bright start to life back in the top flight with six points from a possible nine.
