Ruud Van Nistelrooy Dribbles Fulham

This is it, the Ruud van Nistelrooy wonder goal versus Fulham. Ruud dribbles and scores against nearly the entire Fulham squad. Take a look…nearly as good as Ryan Giggs famous dribbling run or even reminiscent of Maradona’s famous dribbling run in the World Cup. From half field, with his back turned and shielding the ball, he spins away from pressure and the crowd of defenders and doesn’t stop. He takes off on a sprint with the ball and can’t be caught.

What makes it really amazing is how outside of character this is for Ruud, usually all his goals come in the goal box from much more simple plays. But Ruud shows he has some speed and skills on the dribble. How he’s able to finish, turning his body to cut the ball back is even more impressive. He has to turn his body at a tough angle on the sprint to slot the ball home past the keeper. Incredible goal.
