Yes, it’s Soccer AM so therefore automatically comes imbued with a regrettable tinge of banter, but Pies really rather enjoyed this video of Adebayo Akinfenwa attempting to faithfully recreate David Platt’s famous volley against Belgium at Italia ’90.

The bulky Wycombe Wanderers striker’s enthusiasm is infectious, especially when he starts berating the poor soul trying to tee him up from off camera…

He may be built like a Biffa bin, but Akinfenwa certainly has some finishing chops – even if it did take him 42 attempts to hit the tippy top corner.

Also, “top bins” can sod right off.

    Akinfenwa had better never retire. He needs to stay around forever.
