Get James Collins on corners from now on!
Well, no-one is realistically going to be saying that but if you can score directly from them, then why not? The West Ham centre half did that in training for Wales recently as you can see below.
More accustomed to getting his head in the way of a shot or making clearances with his dome, Collins was having some down time in World Cup qualifying training with his country at the end of a session.
And as you can see, he produced an absolutely outrageous strike from the corner quadrant curling the ball straight into the net without so much of a fuss and living up to his “Ginger Pele” nickname.
We don’t expect to see Ginge be on set pieces when West Ham return to action next Monday as they take on Huddersfield Town at the London Stadium but certainly can’t take anything away from him with this sumptuous strike.
Bet you can’t do it again, Collins…
