19-year-old Newcastle Jets striker Riley McGree just scored the best goal in the history of the A-League.

The Jets - who finished last in the last season - have gone on to win the match 2-1, with a Jason Hoffman goal proving the difference.

They play either Melbourne Victory or Sydney FC in the A-League grand final next Saturday night — their first since 2008.
