French U-21 player scores backheel with ballet pose against USA

Dirty Tackle

France began the group stage of the U-21 Toulon Tournament against the USA and won rather easily by a score of 4-1. The first goal of the match came from France captain Alexandre Coeff, who backheeled a free kick into the top corner with one foot planted like a flamingo (rather than a full scorpion kick) before falling forward.

It was an impressive bit of skill and control, but the Lens midfielder celebrated like he tapped it in on an empty net. Meanwhile, the bar for goal of the tournament has now been set pretty high.
