It’s always good to see a player pull off an impressive skill move to unlock a defence or get himself out of trouble.
When the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar or the great Ronaldinho produce a rainbow flick or a flip flap it makes you just look on in awe – how can they do that at the highest level of football and make it look like they’re down the park?
It’s the kind of thing people try to replicate when they’re next playing football and that goes for amateurs and professionals alike, based on what we saw from Jordan Henderson last night.
The no-look pass is enjoying some notoriety right now, wherein the player on the ball looks one way and plays the ball in another direction with the aim of bamboozling the opposition
Last night’s England captain, clearly in flamboyant mood with the armband on, attempted to do just that but in fact caught his own defence by surprise and, had it not been for Joe Hart, would have provided a masterful assist for Slovenia to go 1-0 up.
