Herrera's Mind-Boggling Backheel Flick Fools Panamanian Defender

Mexico beat Panama 1-0 in an international friendly on Sunday night courtesy of an 89th minute winner from Chivas striker Erick Torres. While the game's dramatic denouement will be what's making the headlines in South America, Mexico's Hector Herrera stole the show with one moment of pure magic.

The FC Porto central midfielder duped a Panamanian defender with an incredibly intricate backheel-sidestep hybrid down the left flank. The fact that he managed to avoid the long, outstretched leg of the Panama player, who looked like he was hell bent on bringing the flamboyant Mexican down, makes the move all the more impressive.


Check out the astoundingly awesome piece of skill below. It really is a sight to behold.
