Nanitamo Ikone's Panenka Free-Kick Is The Cheekiest Assist Of The Season
Here's Nanitamo Ikone's late contender for assist of the season.
There have been plenty of stunning assists this season but Ikone's free-kick Panenka may be the best.
The 21-year-old set up Loic Remy in sublime fashion. He Panenka'd the wall for Remy who smashed home on the volley to open the scoring against Bordeaux.
How about this for the cheekiest assist of the season?

Wow. Just wow.
Following the victory, manager Christophe Galtier said that the jaw-dropping sequence between Ikone and Remy was purely instinctive and had never been worked on before in training. Unbelievable improvisation.
great improvisation :clap:

Assist of the season? Well, it's up there along with Trent Alexander-Arnold's naughty corner-kick in the Champions League.
He created his side's fourth goal against Barcelona in utterly ridiculous fashion.
The England full-back pinged a sneaky ball to Divock Origi. A magnificent piece of quick-thinking completed Liverpool's remarkable comeback.
Trent Alexander-Arnold spots Barcelona napping and Divock Origi makes no mistake!!!
4-0 Liverpool :scream:

Lille, meanwhile, have secured Champions League football after beating Bordeaux on Sunday.
They'll join French champions Paris Saint-Germain in Europe's elite club competition, and the club celebrated brilliantly in the dressing room.
They lined up and blared out the iconic Champions League anthem.
Congratulations on qualification to the Champions League and props to Ikone for the unreal assist.
