Kurt Zouma is a big guy, and probably the last player in the Chelsea dressing room you’d expect to skin someone with a piece of skill.
The 22-year-old was in France training this week and came up against Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny, meaning there was surely no way Zouma could advance with the ball.
Undeterred by his opponent, the former Saint-Etienne defender then demonstrated a surprising turn of speed and agility as he ghosted past Koscielny Thierry Henry-style with a stepover before finished low and hard across the ‘keeper with his weak foot.
Should Diego Costa leave Stamford Bridge this summer, Antonio Conte may not have to even spend a penny on a replacement – on the basis of this, just shove big Kurt up top!
It would have been a satisfying moment for Zouma and the Chelsea fans after he and his Blues teammates lost the FA Cup final to Koscielny and Arsenal on Saturday.
France are currently in Clairefontaine gearing up to face Paraguay at the Stade de la Route de Lorient on Friday, followed by Sweden in a World Cup qualifier next week.
Les Bleus are in good shape to make the tournament – they are currently top of their group on 13 points, three clear of their opponents in second.
