Frank Lampard turns up the style, dummies the Cameraman before scoring the winner
It is often said that age is just a number and it is turning out to be absolutely true for one Frank Lampard in the MLS. Often termed as the “retirement” and “easy” league, it hadn’t exactly turned out to be easy for the Premier league players who moved to the US last year especially Lampard. But it seems the Chelsea legend is turning things around this year.
Frank Lampard has been in fine form since returning from injury in June, having scored six goals in his last six games, while reaching 300 career goals in the process.
Lampard scored a late second half brace (goals in the 85th and 93rd minutes) as he inspired New York City FC to a 3-2 win against DC United.
But it was his second goal that caught our eye (or rather did not). After receiving a through ball in the box, Lampard proceeded to execute such a flawless dummy, that even the cameraman was fooled by it. Check out the moment below!
He then finished the move off by slotting the ball home with his left, scoring a late winner and ensuring a dramatic and memorable win for NYCFC.
