Vinicius Jr fooled TWO Shakhtar players with an insane 'reverse elastico', it's straight out of FIFA 23
| Last updated
Vinicius Jr absolutely fooled not one but TWO Shakhtar Donetsk players with an outrageous piece of skill during Real Madrid's win on Wednesday.
Vinicius Jr starred as Real beat Shakhtar 2-1 at the Bernabeu to record their third straight win in Group F.
He scored his side's second goal in the 28th minute following Rodrygo's opener.
The Brazilian international slotted home after a brilliant team move. But it wasn't just his goal that got people online talking.
The 22-year-old produced a spectacular skill that bamboozled TWO Shakhtar players, justifying his five star skill rating on FIFA 23.
He perfectly executed a 'reverse elastico' to beat two players. After skipping past his markers, Vinicius Jr had a shot on goal, creating a chance out of nothing.

A third added: "That Vinicius Jr. inward elastico has lifted me out of the chair."

Real boss Carlo Ancelotti praised Vinicius Jr's link-up play with Karim Benzema and Rodrygo.
"We are playing well, I'm satisfied with the win," he said after the game. "Vini, Benzema, and Rodrygo linked up well in front of the goal."
