The world of football rose to applaud – yes, even Arsenal fans – Erik Lamela’s wonderful ‘Rabona’ finish in Tottenham Hotspur’s Europa League clash against Asteras Tripolis at White Hart Lane.
Ever since the former AS Roma attacker pulled off the audacious finish, the internet has been awash with videos of previous rabonas, as well as fans attempting their own silky finish – without much success, it must be said!
One person who has managed to pull off the Tottenham ace’s worldie is a surprising one, with former Manchester United, Manchester City and Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves completing a rabona of his own during rehearsals on the set of BT Sport.
Famed for being a calm and sensible defensive midfielder during his playing career, it will certainly surprise a fair few that Hargreaves had such capabilities in his locker – although Owen reacts like he does that sort of thing all of the time.
Whisper it quietly, but it’s actually better than Lamela’s…
