|I think Jay Jay Okocha might have been the first soccer star known for his tricks and moves in viral videos. Okocha shows you how to draw in a defender and make a pass with the heel. This isn’t so easy of a soccer trick to pull off but a clever move if you can sucker the defender close to you.|
Jay Jay Okocha was a master at the back heel when he played in the English Premier League. The back heel pass is a skill that’s not used enough, actually. If you can draw defenders close to you, especially in the goal box, there’s usually a teammate open for a shot behind you if you can find them with a back heel pass. The move might seem to unorthodox to use in a real game but that’s just why it might work.
