Sheffield United defender George Baldock won the Championship Goal of the Month for February as he picked up 56% of the public vote. He sprinted into the area to meet a cross with his instep to send the ball into the goal off the crossbar. Sheffield United beat Swansea 4-0 on February 19th to improve their hopes of a playoff spot. His goal even made it onto the official FIFA Twitter account.

“It is obviously the best goal I’ve ever scored and honestly it is going to take some beating, isn’t it?!” Sheffield United defender George Baldock said. “I spoke with David McGoldrick after the game, and I just don’t know how strikers have the composure to enjoy the moment when they score because as everyone saw I just went absolutely crazy. I didn’t know where I was or what I was doing as soon as the roar goes up from the crowd it just becomes a blur.”

“It’s not every week that one of our Goal of the Month contenders makes it onto the official FIFA.com Twitter account and its 14.9 million followers, but that’s exactly what happened with this stunning volley from George Baldock,” Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge Don Goodman said. “The scissor finish alone was worthy of winning this award, but when it was the culmination of a 10-pass move which cut through the Swansea team, it’s no surprise to see that it ran away with the public vote.”

“I’m very happy to receive the award. It was a very important goal, which was probably more significant than it actually being a good strike, with how the game was going it helped us to win it,” Rotherham United midfielder Dan Barlaser said. “I don’t think I can recall scoring much better in my career, particularly with the connection I made with the ball and how I had to watch it come out of the air.”
