It may be the Kazakhstan Premier League but this is ridiculous stuff from Andrey Arshavin

The former Arsenal attacker conjured something sublime for FC Kairat.

HE’S NOW 35 and plying his trade in the Kazakhstan Premier League but Andrey Arshavin can still conjure some magic.

On Sunday, his FC Kairat side side faced Taraz and the game was locked at 1-1 as half-time approached.

Kairat, who also boast Ukrainian defender Anatoliy Tymoshchuk in their ranks, attacked down the right side and the ball was eventually swept across the edge of the area to the former Arsenal attacker.

What he did next was absolutely ridiculous.
