Heel ye, heel ye

This backheel goal by Brazilian football midfielder Edmar for FC Metalist Kharkiv (representing the Ukrainian Premier League) makes Gene Kelly’s clickety-clacks look like foot tremors.

Like many arrogant-yet-talented Brazilian footballers, Edmar goes by one name rather than his given name, which is Edmar Golovski de Lacerda Aparecida. So I guess you really can’t blame him for paring it down.

For those who care about interesting things, this bit of pedal artistry was Edmar’s second goal of the match in Metalist Kharkiv’s 5-0 thumping of Debrecen VSC (of Hungary’s Soproni Liga) during the UEFA Europa League. Edmar makes this ridonkulouslness look far too easy, despite his distance from the goal.

And all you hackey sackers out there who think you’re hot shit can suck it.
