Tekkers! An American football kicker executes a brilliant rabona in a college match

It seems that the kicker for American college side Rice Owls is somthing of a footy fan.

American audiences were taken aback on Saturday night when Rice’s kicker Chris Boswell fooled the Houston Cougars by executing a brilliant rabona to complete a successful onside kick in the final stages of the match.

Chris Boswell was called on for the onside kick during the fourth quarter with the Owls trailing by five and just over two minutes to play, and he managed to retain possession for his team by adopting the fancy footy footwork into this game.
