GIF: Karim Benzema's Scorpion Kick for Real Madrid Ends in Epic Fail

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterOctober 24, 2013

We've seen Zlatan Ibrahimovic score an outrageous scorpion kick goal this past week, and if you needed a reminder that the technique is hard, Karim Benzema provided it last night while playing for Real Madrid against Juventus.

The France striker not only managed to avoid any meaningful connection with the ball, but fell flat on his face in the process.

That's what GIFs were invented for.

Hat-tip to WAATP for the GIF.
