Showstopping skills: Hocus Pocus

Cast a spell over your opponent with this mesmerising trick from professional freestyler Daniel Cutting

The hocus pocus trick is the height of showboating. Juan Mata’s nutmeg effort on Raul Albiol in a Spain piggy-in-the-middle training session was so good he went running off in celebration.

Tough to do at full pace, it’s the perfect bit of skill to pull out of your locker when fronted up by a defender who seems to anticipate your every move.
