Franck Ribery may be 32-years-old and has seen his playing time decrease due to injury and the emergence of the likes of Douglas Costa and Kingsly Coman, but he’s still capable of a bit of sublime skill now and then.
Against Eintracht Frankfurt today Ribery showed how good he can be scoring his second goal of the season. Ribery took the rebound from a Mario Götze shot and, with an incredible overhead scissor kick, found the back of the net from 18 yards out.
