Matching fellow La Liga stalwart Iker Casillas’ impressive powers of recollection stroke for stroke, here’s Xavi correctly and accurately recalling each and every goal (and corresponding result) he’s faced with in a quick game of “What Happened Next?” with the chaps from Barcelona’s Youtube channel.

In fact, he even embellishes his answers with extra little details, from who provided the assist, to injuries he sustained in the build-up to the way the ball swerved on the way in…

Cinco out of cinco. Immaculate pass completion rate, as always.

Y’know, for a positively antiquated footballer who’s played 750 games in 25 years for Barca, that ain’t half bad!
