It was a flashback. A trip back to the past for a few moments. This Tuesday, in the second half of the match between Boca and Defensa, at Marcos Rojo The ball was left on the edge in the crescent of the small area of the Falcon and the defender did not hesitate … He was outlined to hit with the right, the least skilled leg of the defender, then the former students threw away a luxury: a rabona, which ended up hitting the body of a defender from Beccacece’s team.
The rabona de Rojo in front of Defense and Justice.
Of course, this is not the first time that Red uses this resource to avoid hitting the ball with the right. Nothing less than a World Cup had already done it! Yes, it was on June 15, 2014, at the premiere of the National Team at the World Cup in Brazil, in which those led by Alexander Sabella they reached the final against Germany.
At the beginning of the second half of the match against Bosnia-HerzegovinaArgentina won 1-0 but the Europeans came out with everything to put pressure on Pachorra’s team. At 6 ‘from the complement, the center-back received a pass inside his own area and, as in the Bombonera, he did not go around with laps: he took a rabona and sent the ball to the side. The luxury did not take long to go viral and was one of the most remembered images of that World Cup.
