After Tony Hibbert displayed his silky skills last night, another defender has revealed he used to fancy himself with a touch of skill. It's no coincidence then, that former Stoke defender Danny Higginbotham never thought to dazzle the paying public with his Erik Lamela impression; saying attempting moves like that caused more injuries than ended up impressing anyone.
The world will never know how good Danny Higginbotham's skills are.
lamelas goal. I remember trying it at training at Southampton and ended up tearing my medial. Know your strengths. Head it and kick it far
