Here’s the latest from from the Qatar Stars League: Xavi Hernandez is still unexplainably good at football. The 36-year-old Catalan scored a preposterous volley for Al Sadd, the difference in their 1-0 victory over Al Khor.
With his entire being facing the touchline, the midfield maestro allowed the ball to run across his body and onto his right foot. He then somehow managed to contort himself just enough to direct a right-footed volley inside the far post.
It’s a skill that you’ll find in no coaching manuals or YouTube training videos because it just doesn’t make any sense.
