“Brazil 1970, Holland 1988, Spain 2008, Charlton 2019”.
This is just what one Addicks fan was saying after the club released a clip of their 22-pass goal on Wednesday, where they took the lead versus Nottingham Forest.
A great team goal was scored by the South London side which resulted in Jonathan Leko whipping it into Lyle Taylor who nodded it home. It caught the excitement of the fans – as you can probably see – with one comparing it to the iconic sides of Brazil 1970, Holland 1988 and Spain 2008.
Just the 22 passes in the build-up to @lyletaylor90‘s goal last night…

It’s been a great start for Charlton in the Championship. Indeed, after four games they sit eighth in the league without a loss.
They won the first two games on the bounce and have drawn their last two, meaning they’ve got a seven-point buffer on the relegation places with 42 games to go.
Charlton fans have responded on Twitter to the goal and it is fair to say they’re delighted with it. In fact, a few of the responses went one step further and said that that the first half was one of the best performances they’ve seen from their club.
Here are some of the responses below…

First half was promotion form, completely dominant. It wasn’t even that they were poor or lacking effort, they kept trying to press and we just passed around them with ease and won the call back so quickly and ruthlessly. Keep up that standard and we’re laughing.

Possibly the best first half display I have seen for atleast 4 years. Quick passing, pace power. Deserved the points but that’s the championship

Best first half of football I’ve ever seen Charlton play – in over 50 years.
