Fulham's Denis Odoi with outrageous skill off his back

Fulham defender Denis Odoi controlled the ball with his back as he turned Newcastle's Paul Dummett during Fulham's 1-0 win over Newcastle at Craven Cottage

Fulham defender Denis Odoi controlled the ball with his back before spinning around Newcastle's Paul Dummett.

The Belgian pulled off this outrageous bit of skill during Fulham's 1-0 win over Newcastle at Craven Cottage, which Toon boss Rafa Benitez described as a "wake-up call" for his title favourites.

With the ball sailing over to 28-year-old Odoi on the byline, the defender chose to turn away, only to bounce the ball off his back and beyond Dummett, before gathering the ball once more, leading to loud cheers form the crowd.

The shocked faces among the Fulham faithful are almost as good as the skill itself, as the home supporters were left bamboozled by how their player - on his debut - took on and beat the Newcastle defender in sensational fashion.
