The Never Seen Before Overhead Kick First Touch From FC Lyiv's Pedro Vitor

The Never Seen Before Overhead Kick First Touch From FC Lyiv's Pedro Vitor

Just when you thought Real Madrid's Brahim Diaz produced the sauciest touch of the season, FC Lyiv's Pedro Vitor comes up with a unique and unreal method of controlling a ball.

The Brazilian, playing in the Ukrainian Premier League play-off game against Oleksandria last week, received the ball on the left flank when his midfielder sprayed the ball out to him.

But instead of taking the ball down normally, the 21-year old pulled off an insane acrobatic overhead kick first touch before darting down the wing and whipping a cross into the box.

What is it with Brazilians and their filthy first touches? For years now Real Madrid's Marcelo has had us in awe thanks to his incredibly satisfying control but this is just on an another level completely.

Overhead kick efforts and acrobatic clearances are prominent in the game. Overhead kick first touches, however, have never been a thing until now.

With his creative piece of mid-air ball control, Pedro Vitor is a true trailblazer - and we hope many other players try to imitate his technique.

Another aesthetically pleasing first touch to have been conjured up in recent times involved Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman, who we reckon might just cover his boots with velcro.

The Frenchman's unorthodox 'fake shot' first touch before scoring against RB Leipzig in the DFB Pokal Final was utterly gorgeous.
