Cavani Diving Back Heel Goal

Edinson Cavani, the Uruguayan forward, who plays for Napoli in the Italian Serie A, completes the hat trick with an amazing third goal with his heel.

You have to look closely though, as this is not a diving header as it appears to be but a diving back heel. Yes, a diving back heel. Simply amazing. Don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it. Take a look at the goal. It’s no wonder he’s looking to get a hold of the soccer ball after he scores so he can keep it. I don’t know if Cavani misjudges the ball and just has to improvise or he planned to kind of scorpion kick the ball with his heel.

And here’s another Cavani heel goal, this time for PSG.

Edinson Cavani scores brilliant back heel to give Paris Saint-Germain the lead in their 3-1 win over SC Caen in Ligue 1. Kylian Mbappe played a major part in the goal, bursting past a couple of challenges before playing the ball across the box to Cavani. With the ball coming slightly behind him, Cavani improvised brilliantly by back heeling the soccer ball into the air and beyond the helpless Remy Vercoutre in goal. But yes, really, the Mbappe dribbling run is even better than the back heel goal.
