Obviously you don’t become a player at the highest level unless you’re technically very good, but there are some players who you don’t expect to see moments of flair from.

You can also see from the Newcastle player that he’s been completely done and there’s little point in tracking back, so the only thing that would’ve made this better is if the resulting header actually went in.
