Tomer Hemed’s Fancypants Backheel AssistBy: The Offside | March 22nd, 2013
Who would’ve thought that in a match featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, the best backheel would come from someone at the bottom end of the La Liga table? Probably a lot of people. Because that’s just how things work sometimes.
Nevertheless, in what seems like it was probably an excellent game – 3-3 draw with a late, 93rd minute Portuguese equalizer by Fabio Coentrao – the cannoned Greek goal was cannoned into the net by Eden Ben Basat after a fancypants backheel flick by Tomer Hemed. So casual, too, with a little bit of contrast in Ben Basat’s emphatic thump. These two could go on tour as a tandem act.
