Real Madrid’s rising star of a left back Ferland Mendy had big boots to fill when Zidane chose to start him over the legendary Brazilian Marcelo but he has just shown what he is capable of with this brilliant strike from distance.
Best known for his speed and defensive capabilities, the Frenchman has now shown how good his weak foot can be when shooting as the player who is originally left footed curls the ball around the Atalanta keeper with his right foot to give Real Madrid a much needed away goal.
Left-back. Right foot. No problem! 🎯
