Owen Hargreaves has overcome injury, confusing dual-nationality and retirement from football to score a very impressive right-footed Rabona.

Granted, he was unmarked. And the ball was laid off exactly where he wanted it. And he wasn’t actually playing against anyone.

But nevertheless – his right-behind-the-left effort into the top corner of a TV studio goal looks effortlessly spectacular. And people said he’d never walk again! Probably.

All those hours working out with resistance bands have finally paid off.
