The essay is as beautiful as it is unusual.

Sunday at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney (Australia), Uruguay and Spain faced each other in the World Sevens Series, a rugby 7s competition. The match, without real stakes, was the scene of a beautiful number from the South American number 9, as shown by the images relayed by Canal +.


Unusual test of Uruguay this morning!

Like in football

Uruguay had just conceded a try, when Guillermo Lijtenstein recovered the oval ball just after kick-off.

He then extended it towards the opposing camp a first time with his head, then a second time with his foot.

All this, with a bit of luck, along the sideline.

Two defenders, chasing him, failed to catch the Uruguayan.

The player then passed the ball inside to his teammate, Valentin Grille, who was able to flatten behind the in goal.

Uruguay eventually won the game 26-5.
