Video: Gheorghe Hagi shows that he's still got some magic in his left boot
Romanian legend Gheorghe Hagi took to a TV show in Turkey recently to show that he still has the skills.
One of JOE's fondest memories is unlocking Gheorghe Hagi in Pro Evolution Soccer 6 and placing him in amongst the current day Romania squad to lead them to victory at the World Cup. Or at least the squad as it was back then, with Adrian Mutu, Daniel and Marius Niculae, Gabriel Tamas, Cristian Chivu, Nicolae Mitea, you know, all the greats.
We would proceed to unleash absolute devastation on our enemies, curling in shot after shot from the edge of the box with Hagi's tiny but magical left peg, and having little or no mercy for the weak who were crushed underfoot, like crisps under bison.
Anyway, enough about us, this is about Hagi, who was on a chat show in Turkey recently where he showcased the famous accuracy of his left foot which cemented his place in history when asked to hit a few targets by the host. Even at 48, he's still got skills to pay the bills, and he duly obliges with some pinpoint shots. Class is permanent, as they say.
