Robert Lewandowski best watch his back as Manuel Neuer can strike a feckin' football

We always knew that Manuel Neuer had a dribble in him but, Jesus, who knew he could hit a ball this sweetly.

The Bayern Munich goalkeeper is redefining his trade with dazzling skills and midfield antics becoming a trademark of Neuer's game at this stage.

It seems like every week there's another piece of sweeping keeping from the German international and his latest piece of training ground magic will send a warning shot to Bayern centre-forward Robert Lewandowski as it seems like Neuer has more than enough ability to lead the line.

During training this week, the shot-stopper turned into shot-belter as he let rip with a stunning effort 25 yards from goal.

The ball would likely have ripped the net given its power but, luckily, the crossbar was hit first and the ball bounced down and over the goalline (which always adds to the aesthetics of a goal).

Manuel Neuer is a goalscoring goalkeeper and, in honour of his latest bout of wrecking his fellow Bayern keepers' heads, here are three of our favourite pieces of proof that he can simply do it all.

Diarmuid Connolly makes his long overdue GAA Hour debut and talks to Colm Parkinson about everything from the black card to his rivalry with Lee Keegan and how he honed the ability to kick accurately with either foot.
