Football: How to Play

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola is one of the most skilful players to ever play in the Premier League.

The Italian, now managing Championship promotion contenders Watford, wowed the Stamford Bridge crowd between 1996-2003, combining breathtaking skill with some lethal finishing, with a mid-air back heel against Norwich in 2002 one of many standout moments.
