Cameraman steals the show at football match

Yahoo!7 January 4, 2013, 4:29 pm

An unsuspecting cameraman has turned into an overnight celebrity after a stunning display of skills during a football match, was captured on film.

In the Omani league game, as the ball was hoofed long and headed straight toward the cameraman, it looked like it would all turn ugly.

But ever the professional, the cameraman did not flinch. Instead, without looking, he back-heeled the ball to an incoming player ready to collect the ball for a throw-in.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be proud.

    Christopher J. you are either a complete idiot or one of those union slaves who only know`how to follow what is written in their little Red Book. Just take a look at our health system, a complete mess; our countries defence system at it's lowest since 1938; and the goverment owing millios in interest every week. Roll on the next election

    I can honestly say that this is just by pure chance not skills. Just like in basketball where a player throw a ball more than half the court into the hoop. But I will give the cameraman credit for a job well done.

    Very slick indeed and a touch of Columbian Gaol Keeper skills. It was over his head so he used the back of his heel to play it directly to the guy who would throw it in :) To Con Dom who has obviously never played the game - soccer isn't without its injuries other than muscle strains the usuals are cracked skulls and leg & ankle injuries. I've played rugby and League at a high level but rolled my bloody ankle playing soccer - worst injury I ever had.
