Angel Di Maria pulls off incredible bicycle kick in training

Published 1 Comments

Angel di Maria may have struggled to make an impact during his first season with Manchester United, but he certainly looks at home with the Argentinian national team.

The winger is currently away with Argentina at the Copa America in Chile and has helped his side to the verge of qualification for the quarter-finals.

While preparing for the Albiceleste's upcoming group game against Jamaica, Argentina were indulging in a spot of football tennis. After a few shots Di Maria laid the smackdown on his team-mates with a brutal overhead kick. Needless to say he won his team the point.

Di Maria struggled in his maiden campaign with the Red Devils, scoring just four goals following his club record £59.7 million move from Real Madrid last year. 

The 28-year-old put his poor form down to exhaustion having helped Argentina reach the final of the World Cup. He also admits that he would swap any club success he's enjoyed so far - including winning the Champions League last year - to win silverware with his home country.

"There is no comparison," he said. "Everything you can win with your club is special, it's spectacular. Winning the Champions League was the best thing that has happened to me at a club, the best thing that happened to me in my life. But I don't think anything can compare to winning something with your country.

"Because it's your country, because you feel the shirt, you feel the support of a country behind you. We experienced that in Brazil. Every time we went out on to the pitch, we knew there were 40 million Argentines behind us, millions of Argentines in Brazil sleeping on streets, sleeping in camper vans. And you feel that."
