The Fleet’s Myles Weston scored the decisive goal for Antigua & Barbuda in their friendly against Bermuda on Wednesday as the Benna Boys edged out their rivals 3-2.
Having seen Gillingham’s Josh Parker give Antigua a 2-1 lead two minutes beforehand, Weston collected the ball on the right wing on the hour mark, turned a Bermudan defender twice, before carving a path into the box and unleashing a drive into the roof of the net. The goal earned him comparisons to Lionel Messi by the Antiguan FA commentator. The goal is viewable in the link below from roughly the 13:15 point.
