'Such humiliation should be illegal' – Watch Pedri floor two Sevilla stars with DOUBLE dummy in stunning Barcelona goal

PEDRI had Gary Lineker in awe with his stunning goal – after a brutal double dummy.

The Barcelona sensation floored not one but TWO Sevilla defenders before dispatching the ball into the bottom corner.



With less than 20 minutes to go at the Nou Camp and the game goalless, Ousmane Dembele passed to Pedri.

The youngster collected the ball five yards outside the penalty box in the centre of the goal.

He shaped up to shoot early on his left foot but faked a shot as ex-Barca star Ivan Rakitic slid across to block.

Instead, Pedri cut inside and then sold Diego Carlos another dummy as the centre-back also lost his footing and hit the turf on his backside.

That opened up enough space for skilful Pedri to get a clear sight of goal and strike a sweet hit that nestled into the corner beyond Yassine Bounou.

And the goal left fans and pundits alike drooling at his talent – and sympathising for the hapless men tasked with trying to stop him.

Lineker tweeted: "Such humiliation of defenders should be illegal."

Another wrote: "This guy is something else."

A third added: "Pedri has to be banished from football."

And a final user boldly claimed: "GOAT," suggesting the 19-year-old is the best player ever.

Pedri, who won the Golden Boy award, has certainly been tipped for greatness – and the stunning goal only added to those claims.

The midfielder said: "The goal was similar to the one I scored in Turkey (against Galatasaray).

"I saw the leg coming so I feigned (the shot), and once I shot, I knew it was heading in."

'SUPREME PLAYER'

Pedri's effort proved the only goal of the game as Barca leapfrogged Sevilla into second in the LaLiga table.

No wonder he had manager Xavi going crazy in celebration on the touchline.

Xavi said of the rising star: "A supreme player. When I say that, I mean there aren't many people that understand how we play like he does.

"And what a goal he scored. He makes the difference. It's spectacular watching him play, and he's only 19. There are no comparisons.

"I encourage him to shoot more, but he's a passer. He's thinking about the next pass, the final pass, the decisive pass. I was a little bit the same.

"He doesn't realise sometimes you have to try your luck, because he's got a good shot on him. And he scored a great goal today."

Sevilla's sporting director Monchi added: "I don't know if Pedri's goal will go down in history.

"What I do know, is that it was scored by a player that will possibly go down in history."
