We all know that Arsenal FC forward Alexis Sanchez can do great things. But exactly how far does he go in his search for greatness?


On Tueday night’s Champions League Group stage match against Dinamo Zagreb, the Chilean international pulled off something that would amaze any football fan in the world.

As an aerial through ball was directed at Sanchez, the Chilean, firmly facing the goal, seemed to have misjudged the flight of the ball and overrun his mark. However, with an ingenious piece of improvisation, he received the ball with the ball with the back of his neck and coolly laid it down on his path, to go ahead with his run.

Here is a video of the insane back-of-the-neck control.
