Xerez Midfielder José Capdevila Scores Audacious 25-Yard Rabona Lob (Video)

Firstly, a little bit of context. While playing for Real Valladolid back in 2006, José Luis Capdevila attempted an audacious 25-yard rabona lob that he oh so very nearly pulled off…

After spending the next five years waiting for the opportunity to try again, Capdevila (now of Xerez) finally plucked up the cojones to try his infamous trick-shot again this weekend in a Spanish second tier tie against Elche…

(Thanks Paul)

I’ll let Google Translate explain…

“The play started with a long pass pursued Elche defender Samuel and Xerez striker Jose Mari. He went out of his area to clear the goal Jaime, the ball was rejected and killed Samuel 30 meters from goal. Capdevila, who came in the race, fired hooky with his good leg, the left. The lob beat James and Samuel, who tried out in Chile on the goal line. Accounted for 2-1.”

Clear? It was all just a case of ‘firing hooky’.
