Shunsuke Nakamura reveals his goal against Dundee United was copied from a YouTube video

It's not just bloated football bloggers who want to get back to their turkey sandwiches and mince pies that benefit from using YouTube videos. Celtic star Shunsuke Nakamura has revealed that his cheeky chip against Dundee United on Boxing Day was inspired by a video on the site.

The Japanese midfielder said: "The reason I tried to do what I did at the goal was because I saw someone else do exactly the same on the internet. I saw footage on YouTube of a player, I can't remember who it was, chip the goalkeeper from that position. I thought I would try to do the same if I got the chance because it was a goal I really liked. So I was happy I was able to do the same and score." [Via Daily Record]

And here is the goal (now on YouTube to inspire others, albeit with underwhelming commentary!):

I've watched thousands of clips and this never worker for me.

Someone should show Naka someof Paolo Di Canio's goals for West Ham. :)

Perhaps some Ronaldinho clips wouldn't go astray either.

Yeah, sadly having the skill to begin with is apparently part of the deal unfortunately for us mere mortals!

You think the commentators would be a bit more excited for their fellow countryman!

Then again... you'll very rarely find me cheer on Dyer, even though I'm English. Is that a good example?
