The Time Shunsuke Nakamura Curled A Free-Kick Into A Moving Bus

The Time Shunsuke Nakamura Curled A Free-Kick Into A Moving Bus

Shunsuke Nakamura's accuracy is ridiculously impressive - so impressive that he can can whip the ball through the window of a moving bus like it's the easiest thing in the world.

The Japanese ace is comfortably one of the greatest free-kickers in football history, banging in so many for Celtic with his wand of a left foot.

This challenge, set to him by a Japanese TV show, must have been one of the most difficult he's had to face - even for a bloke who scored a winning free-kick against Manchester United in the Champions League back in 2006.

But he completely and utterly smashed it, bending it right into the bus from a considerable distance. First attempt, no problem whatsoever.

The slow motion replay shows just how beautifully he struck it and you could see how proud he was in his celebrations.

Nakamura is now 40 years of age but still playing for Júbilo Iwata in the Japanese top tier. Not too long ago he took time out to appear on a Japan TV show and put his deadly free-kick abilities to the test.

14 Years Ago Today: Shunsuke Nakamura Scored THAT Free-Kick Against Manchester United

published at8 days ago

In what very much looked like a Takeshi's Castle-type set up, Nakamura was challenged to of score free-kicks against a giant, robotic goalkeeper who pretty much covered the net.

He proved he definitely still has it by converting several inch-perfect free-kicks into the back of the net with his wand of a left peg.

The former Japanese international left the Celtic in the summer of 2009, after scoring 34 goals, winning three league titles and several domestic cups in Scotland, winning the hearts and minds of the Hoops' adoring support.

Nakamura, not to be confused with WWE United States champion Shinsuke, is also still in FIFA after all these games. The dead-ball expert is the tenth best free-kick taker on the game.
