DROP A BALL at any kid’s feet with nobody to tackle them and they’ll eventually feel the urge to step in front of the ball and flick it up over their heads.

We don’t care what level this match is played at – or how many defenders stood off him inside the box - Aleksandr Litvinenko deserves your respect.
