Watch: Arjen Robben Showed His Left And Right Foot Are Complete Opposites Last Night

Watch: Arjen Robben Showed His Left And Right Foot Are Complete Opposites Last Night

Some things in life are certain: death, taxes and Arjen Robben cutting in onto his left foot and finding the corner.

The top-level footballers all have their trademark moves, Robben's being a simple but effective one that he continues to use to devastating effect despite not getting any younger.

His wand of a left peg is so wonderful, that his opposite foot takes a back-seat role. It's not quite for standing on, as he has used it on occasion, but it's easy to see why the Bayern Munich star doesn't use it too often.

That's because last night, in a 6-0 rout over Paderborn, the former Chelsea and Real Madrid winger produced a horribly scuffed effort with his right when the ball dropped to him in the area.

Robben was of course aiming for goal but instead saw his mis-hit shot fall kindly for Kingsley Coman to open the scoring.

But who needs a right foot when you're left foot is as good as Robben's? The 34-year old went on to bag two goals late in the game, including a sensational, archetypal effort from the edge of the box in the 86th minute.

Being two-footed is great and all, but Robben's trusty left foot is something else - so good in fact, that it makes up for his invisible right peg.
