Watch: John Egan's double and all the other Irish goals from the Football League

The Brentford defender has made an instant impact at Griffin Park.

IT’S ALREADY WEEK TWO of the Football League season and it feels like it has never been away, we’re talking to you Newcastle and Leeds fans. There were more Irish goals this weekend, not all in the right end, but they are all here for you to feast your eyes on.

In the Championship, highly-rated young defender John Egan showed why he has a growing reputation of grabbing a goal
