Nani's Outrageous Backheel Goal Is The Most Nonchalant Thing Ever

Nani's Outrageous Backheel Goal Is The Most Nonchalant Thing Ever

Former Manchester United winger Nani scored quite possibly the most nonchalant goal you will ever see last night.

The Portugal international has been plying his trade in the United States with Orlando City since 2019 and he conjured up a moment of pure sauce in his most recent outing.

Nani bagged a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Sporting Kansas City and it was as cheeky as they come.

When the ball rebounded to the former Sporting CP man inside the area after Chris Mueller's effort was parried away, he produced a casual yet glorious backheel.



The 34-year old made it look like it was the easiest thing in the world and it's the sort of individual brilliance you could watch on repeat.

The goal did have to be video reviewed and Orlando were more than happy to see the strike given after seeing two chalked off for offside earlier on.


Discussing his backheel goal for his first of the calendar year in the mixed zone after the game, Nani said: "I don't remember to score a goal like that.


"It's always nice to score goals like that because it's like a release of a lot of stress."

We were in the situation in the game where we needed to score and it was good to score like that because I didn't have to do too much.

"The ball just bounced to me and then I had just to do the movement, back heel, and it was good."
