'A Blackpool beauty!': Watch as Sunderland's Elliot Embleton scores a stunning goal in the League One play-off semi-final
Sunderland youngster Elliot Embleton has netted a stunning strike in the second leg of Blackpool’s play-off semi-final against Oxford United.
Embleton has caught the eye since joining the Seasiders on loan during the winter transfer window and will return to the Stadium of Light in the summer – having seen his contract extended until the summer of 2022.
But in the short-term, the 22-year-old could help Blackpool to promotion to the Championship.
Having beaten Oxford United 3-0 in the first leg of their play-off semi-final clash, Neil Critchley’s side were in pole position ahead of the return fixture at Bloomfield Road.
Matty Taylor’s early strike gave the U’s some hope – before Embleton netted a stunning goal to level the scores.
The Sunderland loanee drove forward before curling home from distance, in a goal the Sky Sports commentator described as a ‘Blackpool beauty’.
