Stephen Ireland admits he finds Asmir Begovic's goal for Stoke City against Southampton as hilarious.

Ireland revealed Begovic was embarrassed more than excited to have joined the small band of goalkeepers to score in a Premier League game.

He told Sky Sports: "He hasn't really said much about it because I think he's a bit embarrassed in a kind of humble way.

"I actually couldn't stop laughing. I couldn't believe I was actually on the field to witness a goal like that.

"You always see these things on Sky Sports or on Youtube but I never thought I would ever be on the field to witness something like that in a Premier League game after only a few seconds. I couldn't believe what I was seeing."
