Attacker Uses Zidane Turn To Flatten Defender And Keeper Before Scoring

Usual purveyors of the Marseille Turn, players like Zinedine Zidane, Diego Maradona, Isco and Paul Pogba, have dazzled spectators with their uncanny ability to escape pressure and change their available passing lanes with the most graceful skill in the game.

However, it’s incredibly rare that you see the roulette skill lead directly to a goalscoring opportunity. The turn is more typically associated with the war being waged in midfield rather than the attacking third.
