There is no denying Nicklas Bendtner is absolutely box office.
The former Arsenal cult hero has actually been getting his career back on track somewhat since moving back to his homeland, where he’s currently in pretty decent nick for Rosenborg.
But in an age where football is consumed in six second chunks, this will be on a heavy loop for many fans today.
In their Europa League clash against Zenit St. Petersburg, Bendtner momentarily turned into Kevin De Bruyne and Mesut Ozil combined, playing the perfect slide-rule through ball… only it was for the opposition to score their third goal of the match.
Watch the video below to see it in all its majesty.
Vision, execution, goal. Vintage Nicklas Bendtner.
Rosenborg pulled a goal back late on through Pal Andrew Helland, but the game will be remembered for Bendtner’s little bit of accidental magic.
