Portugal’s Edinho pulled off a magical right boot, left boot backheel keep-uppy rainbow flick combo v Cameroon [GIF]
31-year-old Edinho, a little known Portuguese journeyman striker who is currently on loan at Turkish club Kayseri Erciyesspor from Braga, pulled off an unbelievable piece of skill against Cameroon on Wednesday night.
A halftime substitute for Rafa Silva, Edinho got on the scoresheet with the Seleccao’s fourth in a 5-1 win, however his more impressive contribution came from one moment of magical control.
Looking to control a ball over the top with two Cameroon defenders for company, Edinho seemed in initial trouble when he mistimed his run to get ahead of the falling ball.
Then, in a second of stardom, the veteran pulled off two backheel keep-uppies with his right boot and then his left boot, and with his second touch he rainbow flicked the ball over his head and into his forward momentum run.
