In which, once again, Barca’s silky centre-half Gerard Pique does the kind of thing that would give English centre-halves nosebleeds; shimmies to shake his marker, brings the ball down on his chest, slots away a nifty finish then celebrates with a thumb suck as a tribute to his newborn sprog

Barcelona went on to win 2-4 to waft through to the Copa Del Rey semis (they’ll now face Real Madrid), with goals from Pedro, Pique, Andres Iniesta and Leo Messi.

Full highlights (Iniesta’s goal, or more specifically the one-two with Cesc beforehand, is defeinitely worthy of a watch)…

    Sweet. But I bet you Steve Bruce would have done it looking better.
    Seriously, though, what was Pique doing there? It’s not like it’s a corner or anything. Is he a striker now?
    Stop changing the game, Barcelona, you goddamned racketeers!

  2. Vagbondo says:

    Why Gerard Pique isn’t a striker?

  3. usrick says:

    Not many English centre-halves could manage the celebratory running backwards without embarrassment or injury.

    scores one hell of a goal for the most skilled side in football today, then goes home and has sex with shakira. he truly lives what we all dream.

  6. LCFC77 says:

    That’s some cracking movement for a centre back, RVP would be proud. Left their defender for dead.

  7. gvb says:

    you can argue the he didn’t deserve this years FifproX1… and I doubt he will ever reach the elite tackle/shutdown defending status of the legends like nesta, cannavaro, his captain puyol, or even …must not say it… John Terry. But I’ve said it, heard it, and believe it: Pique would be a top 5 center forward in the more physical leagues such as in England, scotland, etc..

  8. CrazyMario says:

    This Messi player looks like he has some potential.

  9. TravisKOP says:

    this whole ‘piquenbauer’ nickname is stupid. he doesnt hold a flame to der kaiser. that pass by iniesta was brilliant, the one he kicked vertically to jordi alba

    @Mark: The ‘going home and having sex with Shakira’ part is probably not entirely going to happen a few days after she’s given birth.
