Quite the way to produce the seventh goal of a game.
The chest trap, the touch, the intentional nutmeg.
A blessed sequence that might just punch his ticket to heaven:
A nutmeg of the adversary, and an assist to Jesus…
It’s the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final.
Manchester City paired up against a League One (third-tier) team.
And then, Mahrez to Sané—and a gorgeous no-look assist through the legs.
Sane’s assist on City’s 7th goal is absolutely absurd

You feel bad for this Burton team, you really do.
To get to a stage like this, the semi-final round of this Carabao Cup…
Beating Aston Villa, Burnley, Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough—and now against Man City.
But I have to say, when Leroy Sané has the ball in front of you…
You don’t go taking the widest stance you can take.
Evidently, the defender’s got a little too much Dennis Reynolds in his ear:
So lesson learned, for every team in English soccer:
Don’t go taking a wide stance, against Manchester City.
Or against any team, for that matter.
Unless—and maybe this was John Brayford’s motivation all along…
You’d like to do this site a favor, and add a wonderful new piece to the collection.
With a picturesque iteration of the assist.
