Vine: Man with unpronounceable name scores screamer for Athletic Bilbao

Iturraspe, say that after a few pints

Ben Kiely

Iturraspe scored an absolute wondergoal for Athleic Bilbao tonight.

Ander Iturraspe has scored just three goals in 196 appearances for Athletic Bilbao. However, the Spaniard made sure that his third one was very memorable indeed.

The 25-year-old defensive midfielder delivered the coup de gráce on a 3-1 win for his side over Espanyol with a magnificent screamer. He unwound his foot and rocketed the ball passed the keeper and into the net from distance to cap off a wonderful passage of play by the La Liga outfitt.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Iturraspe isn’t that difficult to pronounce. If this is what you think, I’m going to give you a challenge. Get a good idea of how you would pronounce his name in your head, write it down and ask 5/6 people to say it out loud. I can guarantee you there will be some variations.
