10 Best Jay Jay Okocha Skills
By Kingsley Goodluck
Published September 05, 2010

Ever wondered how the 10 best Jay Jay Okocha Skills can be done? Jay Jay Okocha has been very popular in the soccer world because of his effective tricks that amaze everyone. We all want to learn his ways. But remember, reading this one is much easier than getting it done in the field.

  1. Flick and Pass - This is one of the best Jay Jay Okocha Skills because it's very deceiving to the opponent. This move is done by pretending to give the ball, but actually, he passes it off to his teammate right after a flick.


  1. Wrap Around Pass - Okocha does this whenever he's running toward the goal with the ball while he sees his teammate in a good run without an opponent guarding him. He curls his foot to "wrap around" the other foot so he can pass the ball directly to his teammate. By doing this, he deceives the opponent who wouldn't even be able to intercept the ball during the pass.


  1. Reverse Flick Over - Okocha has proven this is one of the best Jay Jay Okocha Skills by applying it almost every time it's possible. By flicking the ball over from behind with both his feet, he's able to let the ball go over the opponent who was in front of him. After the reverse flick over, once the ball went over the defender already, he can just leave him behind.


  1. Back Heel Pass - As shown by Jay Jay Okocha in games, this trick works when he has a teammate behind him during a run especially if there's a defender who's on him. By just kicking the ball from the back of the heel towards the teammate behind, he allows himself to surprise the opponents who are not ready for that move. In effect, this still keeps the ball on their side.


  1. Mid Air Elastic - Kicking the ball to the side to stay away from the defender, Okocha kicks the ball instantly up to the middle of his body towards one side so he can also keep himself in close contact with he ball. This lets him protect the ball and have the chance to run away from the opponent.


  1. Heighting - This is a perfect skill with Jay Jay Okocha's quick changing moves and turns. It's done by putting height to the ball through a kick from underneath the ball. It may sound simple but it should be tough when you're out there in the field with the opponents.


  1. Dazzling Dribble - Whether Jay Jay Okocha is lifting the ball or dribbling it close to the ground, his fantastic dribbling skills make him handle the ball the longest time possible. He wouldn't just let the opponent get the ball easily. As one of the best Jay Jay Okocha skills, his dazzling dribble even makes him protect the ball until he actually makes the goal.

  1. Powerful Shot / Goal - After dribbling, Jay Jay Okocha has the great potential to make a goal. Once he has held the ball for some time and opponents couldn't even control him, he takes advantage of the chance by finding a spot where he can score. More often than not, he goes to the center front of the goal and after some dribbles, does a powerful kick that turns into an awesome goal that everyone loves to witness.


  1. Special Lifting Skill / "Sombrero Move" - This is the Nigerian's trademark, one of the best Jay Jay Okocha Skills. Okocha has used this trick countless times and it really works. He starts doing it by faking a pass to make the defender attack him right away. Then, by slowing down right in front of an opponent, he quickly lifts the ball over the defender's head to leave his opponent behind.


  1. Corner Freekick - The freekick is also one of the best Jay Jay Okocha Skills as it's practical. Okocha's usual free kicks that are successful head toward the corner of the goal. It's reasonable enough to do it this way since any corner part of the goal is the farthest that is most difficult for the opponent to block at all.
