Brighton’s Julio Enciso scored a goal-of-the-season contender to pull his side level against Manchester City on Wednesday.
Enciso emerged onto the forefront this season under Roberto De Zerbi and put on a show for Guardiola with a wonderful strike against the champions on May 24.
The Paraguayan was in from the start as the Seagulls attempted to secure their place in the Europa League next season.
It is the first time in Brighton’s history that they have qualified for European football, and a draw versus City would have ensured a place in the second-tier European competition.

The champions opened the game brightly, despite partying late into the night on Sunday after winning the Premier League.
Brighton answered with a sensational goal-to-goal exchange, quickly bringing the game to City’s doorstep.
Phil Foden opened the scoring from an Erling Haaland assist before Kaoru Mitoma had a goal disallowed and Danny Welbeck hit the woodwork with his free kick.
Enciso’s wonderful goal
Minutes later, Enciso took the ball from a wonderful run from Levi Colwill and prodded forward with intent.
Man City players were slow to close him down and the 19-year-old gladly accepted the invitation to let his shot fly from way out.
This time around, Brighton were not to be denied as the ball whizzed past the outstretched arms of Stefan Ortega into the top corner.
Didn't realise how good the build up to our goal was.— Brett Mendoza💙 (@BrettMendoza_) May 25, 2023
11 passes. From back to front, back to back and then the killer move from Steele and Colwill, before Enciso top bin worldie.

This goal had everything – the technique, the power, the accuracy, and the precision. It could easily be considered as Premier League goal of the season.
