Goals Of The Season 3 - The Ossie Volley

The Match of the Day's Goal of the Season award for 1972-1973 went to Chelsea legend Peter Osgood for the first goal in the FA Cup Quarter Final with Arsenal on 17 March 1973.

'Ossie' was one of the greatest goalscorers of the time, and is best remembered as part of the colourful Chelsea team of the late 60s and early 70s. Surprisingly only capped four times by England, he also made a name for himself at Southampton as well as a stint with Phildephia Fury. He died in 2006 of a heart attack, aged 59.

This game finished 2-2 with Arsenal winning the replay 2-1, before themselves losing to eventual winners Sunderland 2-1 in the semi-final.

Note David Colemans' characteristic 'one nil'.
