Norwich took on Chelsea this evening in the FA Cup, as they aimed to gain a major scalp against the Premier League champions. The Canaries weren’t fancied by many to get the win, even after they brought they tie to extra-time. But let’s face it. When you have Wes Hoolahan in your ranks, anything is possible. However, they ultimately lost out on penalties.
The Irish midfielder was sprung from the bench, and caused the Chelsea rearguard huge problems. He then decided to take these outrageous scenes up a notch, pulling off an outrageous rabona.

Needless to say, it broke the internet.
I’ve just witnessed Wes Hoolahan perform a rabona cross against Chelsea in extra time at Stamford bridge. I’m done, it doesn’t get better than this. #ncfc

Wes Hoolahan comes on in this game and tries a cross by a rabona. Never change Wesley.

However, he wasn’t done there. If he hadn’t already proven his worth, it had come moments after he nutmegged N’Golo Kante.
Wes Hoolahan just nutmegged Kante and won a foul. Don’t doubt the magic of the cup.

Outpacing one of the fastest wingers in the Premier League? No problem…
Wes just out-paced Pedro to a ball and drew a foul which got the Spanish whiz-kid sent off… #LegsAreGone

At 35, he’s only getting better…
