Dennis Bergkamp’s Goal Versus Newcastle

Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp scored a lot of incredible goals, this one versus Newcastle though is quite something. Usually when you beat a defender by touching the ball around them your back isn’t turned. That’s what makes this goal amazing. Bergkamp has his back to the goal. He flicks the ball around the dumbfounded defender before he knows what’s happening or happened. It all happens so fast.

In this edition for Premier League Tactics Session, Robbie Mustoe and Kyle Martino break down Dennis Bergkamp’s historic goal for Arsenal versus Newcastle in 2002.


Still, his juggle goal versus Leicester City is probably even better and more difficult. Is there a forward with the skill and ability to try things like this in the game today?
