The first 45 minutes of Leeds v Southampton have been full of event.
There’s been a penalty awarded and then overturned via the interference of the pitchside monitor, a goal disallowed because the referee didn’t blow the whistle in time and then there was one of the most beautiful sights ever to grace a football pitch.
Raphinha had broken away for the hosts directly from a Saints’ corner and was bearing down on goal with all the time in the world.
The Brazilian was surely about to break the deadlock – but then Oriol Romeu stepped in, or slid in should we say.
Tackle of the season. Oriol Romeu. 💪
The Spanish midfielder pulled off a thumping last-gasp tackle to deny Leeds a goal.
You can keep your volleys and tiki-taka, this is the most aesthetically pleasing thing in football.
