Throughout his playing career, John Terry was never exactly known for his Brazilian flair.
Chelsea’s iconic captain did not attempt a single skill move during a match at any point in his 19-year spell at the club.
Few would have expected that Terry would even have the ability to perform a great amount of tricks, given his role of a no-nonsense centre-back.
As a result of this, he was only ever a two-star skill move player on FIFA.
However, footage has recently emerged showing that JT was a dark horse in this regard.
It was tradition at Chelsea – as it is at many other clubs – for players’ families to come on to the Stamford Bridge pitch after the final home game of every season.
The squad would give a lap of honour and then often have a relaxed kickabout with their children.
At the end of the 2013/14 campaign, Terry did exactly this with his eight-year-old twins, Georgie and Summer.
Georgie attempted to challenge his dad to a one-on-one – a bold move considering he was taking on one of the Premier League’s greatest ever defenders at the age of eight.
Impressively though, he managed to knock the ball through his father’s legs and nutmegged him.
Terry refused to take this lying down, even though he was wearing sliders at the time.
He then took possession and returned the favour with a slick skill move, knocking the ball off the side of his heel and through his son’s legs.
Terry next showed he did possess Brazilian flair after all.
The Chelsea legend executed an elastico and then a reverse elastico against his bemused eight-year-old, who was understandably unable to keep up.
Georgie was nutmegged for a second time and the sequence ended with his father chipping him for a classy goal at the Matthew Harding End.
Undoubtedly the most impressive part of all of this from Terry was his ability to pull off an elastico and a reverse elastico – both five-star skill moves on FIFA.
These moves were introduced to professional football by the great Brazilian Roberto Rivellino back in the 1970s, who took inspiration from futsal teammate Sergio Echigo.
In more modern times, Ronaldinho utilised the elastico on a regular basis and made it his own in the 2000s.
Neymar has since taken on the mantle with Terry’s Brazilian teammate Willian also using the skill on occasion.
Perhaps that’s who JT learned it from.
