Look back at a memorable strike against Charlton..
(23 February 2010, League One, The Valley
Charlton 1-2 Brighton
Inigo Calderon is a popular Spanish right-back who joined Brighton in January 2010, having played for Alicante and Alaves. He made his debut in a 2-1 win at Walsall that month.
Running onto a pass just inside his own half, Calderon ran on and on, before hitting a shot from 20 yards out that deflected past keeper Rob Elliott. The goal gave the Seagulls a surprise lead after 36 minutes.

Why this goal mattered
This vital goal helped Brighton to their first win in seven matches and climb out of the League One relegation zone. The fact it was at promotion chasers Charlton underlined the improvement under Gus Poyet in the Uruguayan’s first season at the club.
Calderon went on to help Brighton towards the League One championship the following season. He continues to play for the Seagulls. There was an Inigo Calderon Appreciation Evening held at the Ginger Pig pub in Hove, as a ‘celebratory night for the basque country’s finest ambassador’.
