Leicester City's Julian Joachim in action in 1993

Aged just 18, Leicester City's Julian Joachim lit up the third round proper in 1993 with a stunning solo goal in their replay with Barnsley at Oakwell.

After the two sides had drawn the first tie 2-2 at Filbert Street, they met again in South Yorkshire seven days later when Joachim picked up the ball inside his own half before jinking forward and producing a sumptuous finish with the outside of his right foot in front of a sizeable contingent of Foxes fans.

Unfortunately for Leicester, Barnsley's Owen Archdeacon levelled things with an equally fine goal to make sure the tie ended 1-1 and sent the game into extra time.

The sides couldn't be separated after that, with the Tykes progressing after a 5-4 victory on penalties.

But that won't stop us from remembering a fine goal from the youngster, who went on to play for Aston Villa in the later years of his career.
