November 6th 2019 marked the 17th anniversary of Phil Jagielka’s stunning strike for Sheffield United against Leeds United in the 2002/03 League Cup (via @SheffieldUnited).
The Whites had taken the lead in the game after Steve Yates scored an own goal in the 24th minute, however there was a dramatic finish at Bramall Lane as two stoppage-time goals saw the Blades win the tie and progress to the next round (BBC Sport).
One of those goals for the South Yorkshire side came from the boot of Jagielka, who chested the ball down well outside the penalty area and struck an incredible half-volley past Paul Robinson.
It was one of the most memorable goals in recent history for Sheffield United, who at the time were in the second tier of English football whilst Leeds were in the Premiership.
After the club posted footage on Twitter of the goal to celebrate the 17th anniversary of it happening, several Blades fans have been fondly remembering the superb strike.
Here is what some had to say…
@daremstar never forget ending up half way down South stand stairs from row Z after this 🤣

Mad to think this was 17 years ago, remember it so vividly! Great season to be a Blade, despite the disappointment at the final hurdle in Cardiff. @smck39
