Watch: Adebayo Akinfenwa scores for AFC Wimbledon against Liverpool

Monday January 5th, 2015

Typically, a top-flight club like Liverpool would have no reason to be afraid of a fourth-tier club like AFC Wimbledon. But AFC Wimbledon has an imposing striker named Adebayo Akinfenwa. He's enormous: 

Akinfenwa, or "The Beast" as he's commonly known, poked home a rebound off a corner kick to pull the Dons even in their third-round FA Cup match.

• Third-tier coach to players: No taking selfies with Wayne Rooney​ 

Wimbledon's website lists Akinfenwa at 13 stone, 7 pounds, or 189 pounds, which might be a touch low. 

Akinfenwa is well-known for his formidable strength. As The Independent points out, he could bench press three Raheem Sterlings.
