Turns out Erik Lamela has previous in the rabona department, with a clip surfacing today of the Tottenham trickster tucking away a similarly audacious effort to his bamboozling goal against Asteras in the Europa League last night while playing in the River Plate youth team back in 2009.
Tottenham Hotspur 5-1 Asteras Tripolis Europa League Group H 23rd October 2014
Tottenham battered Greekside Asteras Tripolis at White Hart Lane on Thursday night in a game which saw Eric Lamela score one of the best goals in recent memory and Harry Kane bag a hat-trick before having a rather unsuccessful stint between the posts.
Harry Kane got a rating of nine after he scored a hat-trick tonight but he could quite possibly have got a 10 had he not went in goals after Hugo Lloris was sent off for a silly late foul with Kane flapping at the resulting tame free-kick.
Here's those Fitba Thatba urchins again, this time tackling the thorny issue of rubbish Luis Suarez jokes as the man himself prepares to return to competitive action this Saturday evening.
The official blurb:
As Luis Suarez prepares to enter the field of play for Barcelona in El Clasico this weekend, we have prepared an animated short detailing everything that has (definitely not) gone on behind the scenes.
FC Nordsjælland midfielder Martin Vingaard had a big fall during the week while training and to us it was darn right hilarious for him rather embarrassing as he steps on a hurdle and slips on another ending up on his rear!
There most definitely was words exchanged in the Liverpool dressing room at half-time following Mario Balotelli's infamous shirt swap with Pepe at half-time which seen the Italian not returning for the second half and deservedly so because he was brutal to be fair.
However the proof is in the pudding they say and Gerrards refusal to swap shirts with former team-mate Arbeloa at full-time is the proof as he refused to swop shirts till after they left the hollowed turf of Anfield.
Former Liverpool greats Jamie Carragher, Jamie Redknapp and Graeme Souness hame condemned Mario Balotelli's antics last night infront of a packed Anfield but also suggest that manager Brendan Rodgers should shoulder some of the blame for what they believe was a panic buy at a cut price yet costly mistake.
Liverpool's former German star and scorer of one of those famous Istanbul goals in 2005 Didi Hamann has accused Mario Balotelli of purposefully trying to wind up the Liverpool fans with his Swap shirt antics last night and if we're honest anything is possible from the headcase that is Mario Balotelli.
Dortmund pretty much passed Galatasaray to death on their way to a 4-0 victory in Istanbul in the Champions League last night, thus preserving the Bundesliga side's immaculate start to the competition.
With some truly delightful interplay from a midfield strata boastingShinji Kagawa, HenrikhMkhitaryan, Marco Reus and later the returning Ilkay Gundogan, Dortmund dismantled their hosts though it was Reus who grabbed the goal of the night with an altogether more direct approach.
Pajtim Kasami may have got the goal but it was Olympiakos keeper Roberto who stealed the show as he denied Juventus an equalizer on several occasions in the second half most notably this one from point blank range which he deflected onto the crossbar much to the frustration of the Serie A champions.
Former Fulham player Pajtim Kasami netted a brilliant team goal last night as Olympiakos stunned Serie A champions Juventus with a 1-0 win in Greece last night with the homeside's keeper Roberto denying the Turin side on numerous occasions in the second- half to leave Juve on the brink of early elimination from this years Competition.
Aresenal's snatch and grab victory in Belgium may only be papering over the cracks in Arsene Wenger's side but last nights victory was as big as claiming their first trophy in 9 years back in May against Hull.
Anderlecht lead up until the 88th minute before Kieran Gibbs volleyed home the equalizer before German sub Lukas Podolski completed the smash and grab with a scrabbled goal in injury time.
Austrian midfielder Marc Janko got off the mark for his new side Sydney FC in the A-League on Friday evening,doing so by simply chesting down a skewiff clearance from Brisbane Roar 'keeper Jamie Young and sending a booming 50-yard volley back from whence it came.
Erik Lamela's rabona goal last night is been hailed as the greatest goal ever and just for those doubter's who deemed it a fluke or a one off here he is doing it as a youngster for River Plate though a little closer to the goals than last night.
Diego Braghieri's super goal for Lanus against Cerro Porteño had many in Argentina comparing it too Maradona's goal of the Century against England in 1986 however though it was good as he glided past four defender's and the keeper before scoring came up well short of Maradona's!
Cristiano Ronaldo showed the Anfield crowd last night why he is regarded as one of the best player's in the World with his first goal at the venue having failed in 5 previous attempts as a Manchester United player but he did continue something he done many times as he cheekily nut-megged Martin Skrtel for unleashing a shot which was saved by Simon Mignolet.
