Diego Valeri Nutmegs Ozzie Alonso
This is bad. As in very bad for the Seattle Sounders midfielder Ozzie Alonso. It’s not just any old nutmeg but the Portland Timbers’ Valeri has his right foot on top of the ball, as if to tempt Alonso, and then flicks the ball through his legs with the left. And it was nearly a penalty as Alonso just had to take him down after being megged so brutally.
Kids, take a look, feel free to try this if you’re in the attacking third and you can pull it off.
And here’s a better video of the Valeri nutmeg on Alonso:
