it's only a tap-in ⋆ An Old International

it’s only a tap-in

The finish by Marcus Dinanga looks easy but the movement involved more than 30 passes – 37 to be precise – and saw 10 players touching the ball at least once. Observers of football of a certain age will remember a previous instance. During the group stages of the 2006 World Cup in Germany, Argentina managed to play 24 passes against Serbia & Montenegro. Gateshead in their game against Kidderminster, beat that tally by 13 passes. It shows that technical skill and slick football can be played at every level, not just at the top.


This goal rightfully deserves every accolade.
