West Ham keeper scores classic Fifa goal in real life

Plenty of fun was had during Mark Noble’s testimonial this afternoon.

THERE WAS PLENTY of fun and shenanigans during Mark Noble’s West Ham testimonial match at Upton Park today.

The Hammers took on West Ham All Stars in an entertaining game to mark 10 years at the club for their current captain.

The highlight was arguably a goal by keeper Adrian, who ran the length of the field before scoring a classic Fifa (as in the computer game rather than the organisation) goal.

The 29-year-old stopper was helped in no small part by teammate Michail Antonio, who in a move of questionable legality, blocked off defenders American Football-style during his colleague’s solo run.

There was more fun to be had, as West Ham legend Paolo Di Canio got his name on the scoresheet after beating a couple of opponents.

Former England international Dean Ashton also proved he’s still got it with an acrobatic scissors kick that brought supporters to their feet.
