Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo produced a magnificent rabona cross against Jamaica in the Copa America group stages on Sunday night, delighting the Argentina supporters in the process.
The crowd gasped when, midway through the first half, Rojo - standing on the left-hand side of the penalty area - crossed the ball by wrapping his left foot behind his right leg.
The cross found Pablo Zabaleta, whose subsequent volley failed to hit the target. People would have been talking about it for years had it flown in. (To see Rojo’s rabona cross, scroll down this page and watch the video).
Argentina won a rather uneventful match 1-0, with the only goal of the game coming from Gonzalo Higuain, who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks.
Incidentally, it was current Manchester United winger Angel di Maria who set up the in-demand centre-forward’s winner.
Di Maria, who endured a tough debut season with the Red Devils, was lively throughout the 90 minutes and almost scored a wonderful goal with a rasping effort from outside the box.
United fans who stayed up to watch the match were encouraged by Di Maria’s energetic display and will now begin to believe next season could be the year the former Real Madrid star explodes into life at Old Trafford.
