Watch Alessia Russo’s exquisite back-heel nutmeg in Euro semi-final

Alessia Russo back heel nutmeg

Well, that was outrageous. Super-sub Alessia Russo put England up 3-0 in the Euro semi-final against Sweden with a beautiful back-heeled nutmeg.

It was quite possibly the Goal of the Tournament.

The ice-cold strike makes Russo the joint-second highest goalscorer of the Euros, with all four of her goals coming as a substitute.

Fran Kirby made it 4-nil to guide the Lionesses to the finals, England's first since 2009. Do they finally win the big one this year?
