Robin van Persie Scores Impressive Scissor Kick Volley Against Swansea City [GIF]


Robin van Persie is one of the few soccer players alive who can make a first-rate finish like this — Saturday morning vs. Swansea City — look ordinary. The Dutchman remains the best scorer in the Prem until proven otherwise. He pulls stuff off like this so consistently we barely blink anymore … even with the degree of difficultly involved of hitting a shot like that on the bounce.

Naturally United leads 2-0 at the half in David Moyes first league game in charge of Manchester United after being out-played for most of the game up until van Persie’s goal.

Earlier NBC mixed up van Persie with fellow Dutchman Ruud van Nistelrooy. Way to bounce back after that slight, Robin. [GIF via 101 GG]
