THE GREAT GOAL: LUALUA V MK DONS

19 March 2016

Look back at a memorable Albion strike against the Dons.


The player
Kazenga Lua Lua is a Congolese winger who broke into the Newcastle first team, just like his brother Lomana Lua Lua. The winger arrived on loan at Withdean in February 2010, impressing with his bag of tricks and blistering pace, not to mention a ferocious shot.

The goal
Returning for a second loan spell at the end of August 2010, LuaLua made an instant impact in his first match back. His thunderbolt of a free-kick from 25 yards was too hot to handle for MK Dons keeper David Martin, who let it in through his hands. LuaLua celebrated the goal in style with a double backflip.

Why this goal mattered
It helped Brighton break the deadlock in an impressive 2-0 win, Albion's first-ever victory over MK Dons. The result also moved the club up to seventh, helping to provide the momentum in a celebrated charge to the League One title in 2011.

And now
The winger remains an integral part of the Albion side. Having joined the club for a third loan spell in July 2011, he went on to sign a permanent deal that November. He has just returned to first team action following a lengthy lay off through injury this campaign.
