Joe Cole’s Clever Finish

Chelsea’s Joe Cole’s smart back heel flick goal against Manchester United. Malouda played a good ball across to Cole who blindly flicked the ball into the corner of net with his heel.

Joe Cole spent seven unforgettable years at Stamford Bridge, scoring plenty of fantastic goals during that time. This is his Top 10.

What with the injury to Wayne Rooney, England started to worry about his fitness for the World Cup. Fortunately his ankle injury turned out to be minor, and he’ll be back in three or four weeks. But with Joe Cole’s goal today, and his recent resurgence for Chelsea, England have another player who could make an impact this summer for his country. Cole has experience and is the rare England player who does the unexpected, the clever and the creative, like his flick heel goal for Chelsea.

It was clear that Manchester United missed Rooney’s energy and firepower. He watched the match from a skybox at Old Trafford.
