BeSoccer - Alireza Jahanbakhsh had to wait 17 months for his first Brighton goal after joining from Dutch side NEC. But he overcame the psychological challenge, to net twice for the Seagulls within the space of five days.

As the coronavirus leaves us without football for a little while longer, we take a look at some of the most impressive goals, players and teams in recent times.

Jahanbakhsh is the Iranian forward signed for a then club record fee of £17 million who had to wait 27 games and 18 months for his first goal, despite being the Dutch league’s leading scorer in 2017-18 with 21. Only now can we see the distress the long wait caused him.

Here, we take a look at his first two goals for the club. Both times, Jahanbakhsh was overwhelmed by emotion and the goodwill of his team-mates.
