Video: Watch Owen Hargreaves score a ridiculously good rabona goal during BT Sport rehearsals
And he managed to score it without buckling his knee in the process.
Granted, that opening line might have been a bit harsh on a man who was notoriously injury prone during his playing days, but he has been making a decent career for himself as a pundit on BT Sport since hanging up his boots; with Michael Owen also on the channel he’s certainly not the worst analyst in any case.
One of the features of the BT Sport analysis is the in-studio pitch that they use to recreate certain tactical aspects of a game that’s being covered and it was on that pitch that Hargreaves scored a quite amazing rabona goal in rehearsals.
Sure, there was no ‘keeper or no defender near him to put him off but the technique displayed by the former Manchester United and Bayern Munich man was mightily impressive and certainly not the kind of thing you would have expected from him during his playing days.
Pick that one out.
