Whether taken through careful preparation and calculation or completely by accident, perfectly timed photos are an absolute joy to look at. Here we look at seven of the football pictures taken at the right moment.

When Harry Redknapp subbed Luka Modric off for Wilson Palacios in the 78th minute of Spurs’ 2-1 win over Aston Villa back in October 2010, he showed Modric what appears to be his middle finger; the photographer was so present!
6. Wayne Rooney (2011)

Back in 2011, Sir Alex’s side would go to the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie with Chelsea at Old Trafford with a one-(away)goal head start thanks to Ryan Giggs’ impeccable first-touch and Wayne Rooney’s smart finish.
Rooney had to celebrate the impeccable goal, keeping the head down this town.
5. Raheem Sterling and Willian (2015)

January 27th 2015 saw one of the most perfectly timed pictures when the then Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling with his short hair was standing in front of Chelsea’s Willian.
4. Cristiano Ronaldo (2016)

If Cristiano Ronaldo really is football’s Superman, then Austria must be his kryptonite. From the moment Portugal vs Austria kicked off back in 2016, the former Real Madrid star seemed to lose all his superpowers. The picture talks??
