From Denis Law through Rabah Madjer to Cristiano Ronaldo, FIFA.com looks at some of the most celebrated exponents of the back-heel.
Grafite talks to FIFA.com about being a late developer, his glorious 2008/09 season with Wolfsburg, proud South Africa 2010 experience, recent return to form with Al Ahli, the class of Edin Dzeko and lack of outstanding Brazilian strikers in Europe.
Al Ahli have signed Wolfsburg striker Grafite on a two-year deal, with the 32-year-old Brazilian relishing a new challenge with the United Arab Emirates club.
Brazilian striker Grafite is set to finalise his future this week in talks with Wolfsburg boss Felix Magath, with the 32-year-old thought to be considering a move to the United Arab Emirates.
A brace from Mario Mandzukic and another added by Grafite in the second half secured a 3-1 comeback win for Wolfsburg over Hoffenheim, to ensure their Bundesliga status next season.
Georg Niedermeier's stoppage-time equaliser earned Stuttgart a dramatic 1-1 draw at home to Wolfsburg and denied Felix Magath a winning start in his first game back in charge.
