Incredible Compilation Of Arjen Robben Scoring The Same Goal Over And Over Again

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 tricks. Diego Maradona and Johan Cruyff both brought in their own original skills and you see those tricks everywhere these days - from Sunday League to the Champions League.

Robben's is a simple but effective one that he continued to use to devastating effect throughout his decorated career. Eat, sleep, cut inside, repeat.

While it is a tad strange that defenders don't prioritise showing Robben onto his considerably weaker right-foot given they know what he's going to do, he has perfected the art of shaping to shoot from the right side of the pitch.

Genuinely, there aren't many better sights in football than seeing Robben pick up the ball, slamom past a couple of challenges before bending one into the top bins.

Sometimes predictability can be a beautiful thing and it's definitely the case with Robben, who is the subject of many compilations on YouTube in tribute to his archetypal cut-ins.

Robben loves his go-to move so much than even when he has an open goal, he'll still check back inside rather than hit it with his right.

He announced his arrival with PSV, won back-to-back titles with Chelsea and lifted La Liga with Real Madrid but it was at Bayern Munich where he produced his best form.

He won eight Bundesliga titles and lifted the Champions League in ten stunning seasons in Bavaria. In total, Robben scored 144 goals in 309 appearances. That's a lot of cutting inside.

Robben announced his retirement from professional football in July 2019 but then completed a u-turn when he returned to boyhood club FC Groningen, who he first joined as a 12-year-old.

The 37-year-old rolled back the years in a pre-season friendly against Arminia Bielefeld in September when he found the net with that trusty wand of a left foot.

The goal came 18 years after his final strike for the club prior to his move to PSV Eindhoven in 2002.
