Watch: Northern Ireland's Paddy McNair nets absolute screamer for Sunderland

Northern Ireland midfielder Paddy McNair scored a long-range stormer during Sunderland's Championship game at Reading on Saturday afternoon.

The goal was McNair's third of the league season in only his ninth start and his second strike in as many matches.

The Ballyclare man picked up the ball just inside Reading's half, strode forward and unleashed a swerving effort past a helpless Reading stopper to level the scores.

Sunderland went on to draw the match 2-2, having led 2-1 after Lee Cattermole added to McNair's effort. The club remain rooted to the foot of the Championship table.
