Anyone who plays EA Sports' FIFA game knows how hard it is the take a goalkeeper all the way from his area to the other end of the pitch without being tackled. Even harder is it to then get that lumbering giant of a goalkeeper to shoot into the goal.
It has long been touted as the ultimate challenge and has led to many more goals being conceded than scored in the virtual world. So, how hard is it to do in the real game? You would think impossible, unless your name is Adrian, of course, who has since proved to have the dribbling prowess of Diego Maradona.
The West Ham goalkeeper was starring in Mark Noble's testimonial at Upton Park on Monday which saw West Ham facing up against, yes, West Ham All Stars. How creative.
With the game balanced at 1-1, Adrian decided he had had enough of playing in goal and threw the ball out intent on dribbling past every single player. Amazingly, and possibly helped by a lack of effort from his counterparts, he managed to do it before finishing neatly past David James.
Watch carefully and you may be able to spot the moments where West Ham All Stars simply allow Adrian to wander through. It's like when the boss comes to the company sports day and no one dares overtake him in the egg and spoon race.
There is no excuse for James, however, who was appearing in goal and allowed Adrian's tame effort to slip through his legs.
By half-time, the game was 4-1 and, at the time of writing, it is 5-2.
