Andres Iniesta Just Scored The Sexiest Goal You'll See All Season
Stop it, Andres - you're supposed to be easing your way into retirement, not producing absolute fire for Japanese club Vissel Kobe.
The former Barcelona midfielder just scored the most magnificent goal against Jubilo Iwata in the J-League fixture, rolling back the years with a scrumptious turn that left the defender flat on his arse.
Iniesta, remaining cool and calm as ever, rounded goalkeeper Naoki Hatta and opened the scoring with arguably one of his greatest goals.
You will not see a better goal this weekend. In fact, maybe you won't see a better goal this season. Take a bow, Andres.
It comes just a couple of weeks after he produced a filthy, filthy touch during a game in the J-League. He brilliantly plucked the ball out of the air with his right foot, before caressing the ball with another delightful touch, eventually laying off his teammate.
