Back-heels with a touch of class

By Football News



Santos attacker Pato Rodriguez scored the pick of several wonderful back-heels seen in leagues around the world in the past two months.

The 22-year-old Argentine, whose side finished eighth in the Brazil Serie A, netted with a delightful effort in Santos' 2-0 win over Figueirense.

 Serbian veteran Danijel Ljuboja was on the scoresheet with a similar effort as Legia Warsaw edged Piast Gliwice 3-2 in the Polish Ekstraklasa.

 Former Inter Milan attacker Alvaro Recoba continues to show his class in Uruguayan Primera Division, with his back-heel featuring in the lead-up to of one of Nacional's two goals against Cerro Largo.

 Also in South America, Narciso Mina dragged in a tough effort for Barcelona against El Nacional in Ecuador's Serie A, while Amjad Radhi struck in Arbil's 4-1 thrashing of Chonburi in the AFC Cup in October.
