That's how to do a Rabona! [video]


Filed: Sunday, 30th April 2017
By: Staff Writer


Jonathan Calleri may have been panned for attempting a 'Rabona' when it seemed easier to pass the ball into the net at Stoke yesterday - but there's a good reason why he tried it.

The 24-year-Argentine forward was heavily criticised by Hammers fans for attempting the spectacular during West Ham's goalless draw with Stoke at The Bet365 Stadium yesterday - and fluffing the opportunity.

However two years ago, during a Primera Division fixture against Quilmes the then-Boca Juniors striker attempted - and succeeded with - a far more difficult attempt.

With Boca leading 1-0, Calleri tried the audacious strike - and pulled it off perfectly, as you can see from the video below!
