Video: James Milner Recreates Gianfranco Zola’s Famous Flick Goal

James Milner recently recreated Gianfranco Zola‘s famous flick goal against Norwich back in 2002.

The Liverpool midfielder took part in BT Sport’s #GoalsRecreated feature, where current players try to score famous strikes from the past.

Riyad Mahrez, Dele Alli and Santi Cazorla are among those to have had a try at some memorable strikes – and Milner is the latest as he was given the task of recreating Zola’s sublime flick for Chelsea 14 years ago.
