Man City reject has done what Lionel Messi and Ronaldo couldn’t

Remeber that great goal Felipe Caicedo scored? No, and why would you.

Seven goals in two seasons at Man City puts him somewhere in between Rolando Bianchi and Benjani in the list of City greats.

But at international level the Ecuadorian has been far more impressive, scoring 19 goals in 59 appearances.

In fact the 27-year-old has equalled a South American record by becoming only the second player to score in five consecutive qualifiers.

That’s something the likes of Lionel Messi, Ronaldo, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Batistuta couldn’t do for Argentina and Brazil.

The only man to match Caicedo was Jorge Aravena who played for Chile between 1983 and 1989.

Caicedo left Man City to join Lokomotiv Moscow in 2011 before moving to Al Jazira three years later.

Now he’s (sporadically) banging in goals for Espanyol in La Liga when he’s not setting records.

Someone get this man a move to the Premier League!
