Jamie Carragher lavishes praise on Abdoulaye Doucoure's stunning strike
Jamie Carragher spoke glowingly on the moment of magic from Abdoulaye Doucoure that secured Everton's Premier League survival, hailing his winning strike against Bournemouth as an 'unbelievable goal'.
Midfielder Doucoure smashed home from the edge of the penalty area in his side's do-or-die showdown at Goodison Park yesterday, with his effort sparking pandemonium before Leicester and Leeds were consigned to the drop.
For much of the clash on Merseyside, the hosts struggled to create clear-cut chances and were almost punished for their blunt display, with Cherries striker Dominic Solanke coming the closest to silencing the raucous atmosphere.
However, Doucoure provided the dagger that sealed a 17th-placed finish for the Toffees, leaving goalkeeper Mark Travers helpless despite his previous heroics.
Speaking post-match, Sky Sports pundit Carragher singled out the sumptuous effort and praised the 30-year-old's impact since being brought back in from the cold.
