In the champions league match between Tottemham and Asteras on October 23, Erik Lamela scored an amazing rabona goal.
It was a fine piece of technique that had the soccer world buzzing, with many players showering praise on Lamela.
The goal is everywhere on Youtube, just search for “Lamela Rabona” and you should see a number of results.
This rabona goal reminds me of the good old times in PES where we can perform the Rabona shot. It was in PES 2013, and the versions before, where we can perform a Rabona shot using players with weak foot usage of 3 and below, and shot technique of 85 and above.
Some players that fall into this rabona category are Di Maria, Podolski, and of course, Lamela.
Unfortunately, this feature is not present in PES 2015, as we can only perform the Rabona cross and not the Rabona shot that we all love.
We shall see if this will return in PES 2016? It may not be a good shooting technique for scoring goals, but it is the ‘ultimate showboating’, as what Peter Crouch tweeted.
