Angel Di Maria's Rabona Cross to Cristiano Ronaldo
Manchester United's new signing Angel Di Maria is the rabona king.
It's not often you see a rabona pass or cross actually work. But former Real Madrid midfielder Angel Di Maria shows you just when and how to use the rabona cross to your advantage and surprise the defense. After playing a nice give and give with Benzema, Di Maria clips the ball across the goal mouth with his opposite foot to Ronaldo. The rabona to Ronaldo comes at about the 30 second mark in the video below. Take a look.
Although it's not the first time Di Maria has pulled off a rabona. In the video below Di Maria actually scores with a rabona when he played for Benfica. And the goal comes from doing a rabona while charging at the keeper on a breakaway.
And here Di Maria uses the outside of his foot to cross the ball while playing for Argentina. Not a rabona, but just as good. Too bad he was injured for the World Cup final! What do you think, could have Argentina beat Germany in the World Cup final if Di Maria was playing? Seems like they could have when you see this outside of the foot cross to Aguero:
