The UAE’s answer to Barcelona

If Barcelona scored a goal like this - it would be replayed for years to come.

UAE side Al Ain channelled the spirit of the Catalan giants with this gem of a tiki-taka goal in their 4-0 rout of Ajman.

Already 3-0 up at the time, Al Ain really took showboating to the next level as every member of the team, including the goalkeeper, was involved in the 19-touch move.

It was Yousef Ahmed who had the honour of rolling the ball into the net to complete the memorable goal.

It is perhaps no surprise given the quality of the goal that Al Ain are romping towards the UAE Pro League title.

They have won 12 of their 14 games and have a goal difference of +37 this season and currently have a nine point lead over second placed Al Jazira.
