Now that is just silly – too silly for any of us to replicate it on FIFA 10 or even in our dreams. Okay, Robinho scored this stupendous goal in a charity match (a couple of years ago now) but still, he’s one of the few players on the planet with the skill, imagination and speed of thought to do this – just when you think he’s about to score what would be an amazing goal, he stops and makes your jaw drop a little bit further.

Of course, if Flash Rob tried this in the Premier League, he wouldn’t get much further than the first heel flick before some no-thrills right-back reduced him to the turf.
