Monterrey’s Maxi Meza’s bottom of the foot nutmeg while on the ground after saving the ball from going out of bounds. Yes, that’s a mouthful but it’s a skill that should have earned like extra points for his club. It’s a piece of art, really. I mean what do you do after that. Meza should just leave the pitch. His work is done. It’s a soccer magic trick.
In Spanish sometimes a nutmeg or putting the soccer ball through someone’s legs is called a “tunnel”, which seems even more appropriate for Meza’s nutmeg. Should the defender be embarrassed, a bit. He correctly tackles Meza after the nutmeg to at least kill the play.
How do you practice this skill. Run to the sideline and slide to save the ball and then use the sole of your foot to put the ball through the legs of the on rushing defender. Extraordinaire.
Watch Maxi Meza’s nutmeg with the bottom of his foot while on the ground after saving the ball from going out of bounds – it’s a long sentence, yes, but needs to be repeated because it’s such an amazing piece of work.
