VIDEO: Stick Robbie Fowler on free kick duties and he could definitely still do a job for most sides

Cristiano Ronaldo, eat your heart out

You simply don’t lose the ability to strike a ball.

Well *you* might but Robbie Fowler certainly doesn’t.

The 41-year-old lined out alongside some fellow footballing legends and YouTube stars at the Wembley Cup final on Friday night.

The former Liverpool striker may have lacked the fitness that he once had but while standing over a 30-yard free kick, Fowler proved that he was not going to rely on tap-ins to get his name on the scoresheet for his team, the Weller Wanderers.

Fowler broke the deadlock in the promotional challenge match with this, a stunning strike that arced straight into the top corner.

In the current transfer climate, that free kick alone easily makes Fowler worth at least £70 million.
