Alexis Sanchez controles the ball with the back of his neck

He is known for his tireless efforts on the pitch, his goal scoring abilities and his mazy runs through opposition defence, but Alexis Sanchez pulled off something remarkable.

In Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Dinao Zagreb in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, November 24, the 26-year-old brought down a ball with the back of his neck.

The Chile international scored twice in the game to keep Arsenal’s hopes of qualifying for the last 16 alive.

On 75 minutes, he received a pass from his teammate Laurent Koscielny which he received with the back of his neck.

The Chile International has been a trending item on Twitter and Facebook for that effort.

He controlled the ball with the back of his neck which bounced comfortably in front of him to continue play.
