Watch: Antonio Valencia Fires A Banger Into The Top Corner With His Left Foot

Despite his obvious talent, Antonio Valencia has always been regarded as an infamously one footed professional footballer. 

Such is Valencia’s tendency to avoid using his left boot that the Ecuadorian international can often be predicted long before he makes his own mind up on the football pitch… drop the shoulder, knock the ball to the right and fizz a low cross into the box.

However, on Monday night, the winger turned right back did something that has rarely been seen during his time at Old Trafford as he instead pulled the ball onto his left and slapped a rocket of a shot into the top corner with his bad foot.

United were unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty kick in the opening ten minutes after Anthony Martial seemed to be hauled down in the box.

However, with Valencia seemingly discovering that he has a left foot, United fans should be reasonably certain that a good night lies ahead.
