Arjen Robben Still Cuts Inside, Despite Open Goal Opportunity
Plenty of footballers have a trademark skill move. Cristiano Ronaldo uses the 'Ronaldo Chop' trick on the odd occasion and former Brazilian 'wonderkid' Kerlon made a name for himself by flicking the ball in the air and balancing the ball on his head like a Seal.
But nobody, and I mean nobody, comes close to using a skill move more than Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben
The 34-year-old pulls out the simple but effective 'cut inside' on an almost weekly basis - the guy even uses it when there's an open goal right in front of him..
In his club's 1-1 draw against FC Augsburg on Tuesday night, the Dutchman managed to open the scoring with the most Arjen Robben goal of all time.
Rather than knock in a simple tap in from 12 yards, the Bayern man cut inside on his trusty left boot.
He managed to knock it in, though, despite three defenders in his way.
Munich went on to drop two points thanks to a goal from Felix Gotze in the 86th minute but this moment is by far the more memorable.

Robben had an open net but still cut inside lmaoooo- Sa'eed S Z (@Sae_SZ) September 25, 2018
Whenever Robben had space in the right wing you know he would just cut inside and finesse or drive wide to pull a bullet cross, No sideways passing or backwards dribbling nonsense. And it was actually effective always. It either created a chance or a golazo- Siddharth (@Siddharthesquee) September 20, 2018

A man who follows a simple process for success: eat, sleep, cut inside, repeat :wink: pic.twitter.com/rmXLb08T3A
The Robben 'cut inside' is so effective, even in 2018.
