A backheel always seems to be preceded by the word β€˜cheeky’.

It’s almost as if a footballer is rude for even attempting a backheel, whether that be a pass or a trick to beat a man.

This backheel from Edinson Cavani v Caen in 2017 resulted in one of the most aesthetically pleasing goals you’ll ever witness.

Call it cheeky, call it ridiculous, you might even say it’s ludicrous.
