Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to training footage of striker Jean-Philippe Mateta on social media.
He’s one of many Palace first-team players who will remain in London during the international break, and he’s been put through his paces on the training ground in front of goal.
The club shared a 41-second clip on their official Twitter page on Wednesday afternoon of Mateta going through a shooting drill. Jack Butland was between the sticks, with Mateta taking a few touches with his back to goal before unleashing a shot into the far corner.
It took five attempts for the Frenchman to find the back of the net after hitting the post on multiple occasions.

Palace fans react
This is what these Palace supporters had to say to the post, with some poking fun at the striker.
“Is Roy admin today or something”
“why would you tweet this”
“Why do we practice this routine? I’ve never seen any striker of ours turn and shoot outside the box since the days of Mathias Svensson.”
“I love the way he celebrates training goals“
“Reversing the curse by showing misses instead of goals. Genius”
“His celebration for training goals is so funny”
