The Instagram account ‘bestoffootball’ has shared a quality video of a young freestyler scoring a stonking rabona goal.
The tekkers on show—originally posted by ‘teamfk’—are truly astonishing, as the player sends a delicious right-foot rabona into the corner of the goal, nestling in the side of the net with aplomb.
The technique is astonishing, the run-up afford the kicker the power he needs to make the distance to the net and the player’s balance is simply perfect.
The quality of the effort is highlighted by the slow-motion video, which perfectly captures the ball’s trajectory, which dips delightfully at the last minute to just find a spot beneath the crossbar.
Erik Lamela is just one high-profile forward to have found the net in astonishing fashion with a rabona goal when Tottenham Hotspur demolished Asteras Tripolis 5-1 in the Europa League in October 2014.
However, the technique is not an easy one to pull off, as Sunderland’s Wahbi Khazri—who mishit a rabona in a recent league game—can testify.
