Joel Campbell has always been my greatest muse at The18, from polls wondering if he’s CONCACAF’s next big thing to tales of Arsenal sending him out on loan seven times to conjectures over whether he’ll be able to eclipse Kristine Lilly’s all-time international cap total of 354 (I think he will).
Now on loan — no one does it better — at Monterrey, the 29-year-old wizard of the wing continues to treat every fullback like they’re Jorge Villafaña.
This 20-second sequence includes a soul-snatching nutmeg, a bad pass (obviously intended so he can get the ball again) and a pirouette that would capture the eye of The Paris Opera Ballet.
