And then he doubled his score 20 minutes later with a header after the game was restarted after the lights went out at Vicarage Road.

But it was his first goal in the race for Goal of the Year when he scored with a powerful running scorpion kick.

The American player finished Teemu Pukki’s low pass, right behind him.

However, the former Werder player Bremen has readjusted his foot, where he hurls the ball with his heel towards goal.

And the ball bounced off the underside of the crossbar and right up to the line to spark wild celebrations from fans and players alike.

Speaking about the commentary, Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher said: “I think the opportunity was gone because the pass was so on target from [Kenny] McLean took it away from Pukki.

“But Pukki did a great job keeping it.

“That was unbelievable from Sargent.

“I think the defender went down before Pukki made contact but the shot went out of this world.”

Watford were then reduced to ten men after Emmanuel Dennis was sent off, before Juraj Kucka scored his own goal in extra time.
