WATCH: Arjen Robben tried to shoot with his right foot and it was predictably awful

The Dutchman has a wicked left boot but we didn't know he could actually use his right, it turned out he proved us right.

BREAKING: Arjen Robben has a right foot.

Nope, we had no idea either.

The Bayern Munich man managed to get an assist with his right foot to put his team 1-0 up against Paderborn in the German cup.

But it proved that all of Robben’s magical football skills are reserved solely for his left foot.

One rule when for any defender trying to mark the tricky Dutchman is never to let him cut onto his left foot – the majority of the time that is easier said than done.

And Robben showed that he really struggles when left to shoot with his weak foot, just watch this.

The ball drops to Robben on the edge of the six yard box with the goal gaping and all he had to do was slot it home, except he could only use his right boot.

After what can only be described as an air scuff, the ball fortunately bounces into Kingsley Coman’s path and he buries it.

Robben even went to congratulate Thomas Mueller for his part to play in the goal in attempt to paint over what he had just done.

Thankfully Robben reminded everyone what he is capable of with his left foot to score Bayern’s fifth goal against the side from Germany’s third tier.

And just to prove that he is not a professional footballer with only one leg, Robben scored the sweatiest goal you will ever see when he tapped into an empty net from two yards out with his supposedly invisible right leg.

It’s fair to say Twitter was pretty surprised to see the Dutch star trying anything with his right foot.
