Hatem Ben Arfa, Newcastle player back then, scored one night in April 2012, a goal worthy of Lionel Messi.
He is a truly talented player without any doubt. The produce of generation 87, considered as the golden generation of French soccer, is among those who managed to grow and make a name for themselves in the soccer world.
If his career was not always easy, it did not stop him from shining bright, he who was trained by Olympique Lyonnais. He returned to Nice last season fit and in shape, to the point that Paris Saint-Germain almost signed him this summer. The talented player also had the opportunity to lift the crowds in England during his time in Newcastle.
In 2011/2012, under Magpies' jersey, Ben Arfa scored one of the most important goals of his career against Bolton (2-0). On a solo run from the midfield, the French proved that he had nothing to envy Lionel Messi by scoring an absolutely phenomenal goal.
A pure joy:
