The last-gasp David Clifford goal which kept Kerry's championship season alive

The 19-year-old kept Kerry alive with a deadly finish deep into stoppage time.

MONAGHAN CAME AGONISINGLY close to reaching a first All-Ireland semi-final since 1988 at St Tiernach’s Park this evening, but it was Kerry who ultimately staved off the ignominy of a July championship exit as Eamonn Fitzmaurice’s men rescued a late, late draw in Clones.

19-year-old David Clifford has long been championed as a potential saviour for Kerry football, and he came good on at least some of that promise today as he saved The Kingdom from having to endure a dead rubber in Phase 3 of the Super 8s.

Clifford, who not long beforehand had fired over an outrageous point off his left boot, once more proved himself lethal off either side as he pounced on a ball broken down to him by Kieran Donaghy and lashed the ball past Rory Beggan with his right.
