Ronaldinho performs delicious no-look pass…but the back-heel goal is disallowed (Video)

Nearly perfection!

We’d suggest he’s only doing this because it’s a friendly, but Ronaldinho made a career of taking the p*ss.

The Brazilian was representing the Rest of the World against a Great Britain & Ireland XI in a Unicef game arranged by David Beckham, and decided to have some fun.

Following Paul Scholes’ trademark opener, the Barcelona legend found himself in the D of the opposition box, and played a beautiful no-look pass to his Worldy teammate Patrick Kluivert.

Sadly for the Rest of the World – and everyone in attendance – the Dutch striker had strayed offside and so his backheel finish counted for nought.

Cheeky bid for the buck-toothed genius, Louis?
