Dorking player's bizarre pirouette with no one near him: 'Why did he do that?'

by News Update

Dorking Wanderers’ Jake Gallagher lights up the pitch with some silky but ultimately pointless footwork. The semi-professional footballer pirouettes with no one near him after bringing down a lobbed pass from his goalkeeper, much to the amusement of the commentators. ‘He’s on Dancing on Ice, I gave him a seven. Why did he do that? Can someone explain why he did that?’
