You May Have Missed Antonio Rudiger Trying To Copy Luka Modric's Outside The Boot Pass

Never change, Antonio.

Antonio Rudiger tried to emulate Luka Modric's insane outside the boot pass during Chelsea's FA Cup semi-final win over Crystal Palace - with dramatically different results.

Modric broke the internet on Tuesday night after setting up Rodrygo for Real Madrid's equaliser in their Champions League quarter-final second leg tie with the Blues.

The 36-year-old whipped a ball beyond Chelsea's backline which allowed Rodrygo to volley home and bring Madrid level in the tie.

Rudiger was on the pitch at the Santiago Bernabeu and tried to bust out his very own 'trivela' at Wembley on Sunday.

The Germany international took a few touches to compose himself before attempting an audacious through ball.

It didn't go well. Cheikhou Kouyate managed to intercept in the centre circle and regain possession for Palace.

Rudiger is one of English football's best personalities right now and fans were loving his attempt..

One commented: "Rudiger really thought he could do it like Modric."

Another said: "This guy is too funny."

A third tweeted: "Rudiger is such a joker I love him."

While someone put: "At least he tried lol."


Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners in the end thanks to goals from Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount and it means they'll be playing their third FA Cup final in three seasons.

They'll take on Liverpool, who defeated Manchester City in the other semi-final on Saturday afternoon.

Thomas Tuchel's side have already lost a cup final to Liverpool this season, the Carabao Cup in February, and he wants his side to prove they deserve the trophy next month.

When asked about winning the competition he told reporters per AbsoluteChelsea: "We cannot promise. All we can do now is to be well prepared because it will be another hard fight given the quality and run of form from Liverpool.

"It's unbelievably difficult to beat them but this is what a cup final is about. It's about winning and we need to try to find a way to beat them.


"We'll need a bit of luck and everything at the top level we can have.

"Of course, it makes the season that much sweeter if you have at the end of the season a final that you can win. But as we all know in a final, two compete against each other and we experienced last season and this season that sometimes you give your everything and it's not enough.

"We will try to find a way and if we do this, then we deserve it. And we want to deserve it."
