Elton Martins didn’t make any friends on Deportivo Cali with this stoppage-time trick in Medellin’s 3-2 win on Saturday, but he has plenty of admirers on the showboat circuit.

The 26-year-old Brazilian midfielder collected a cross with his neck after chesting it into the air. Stalling the ball for a bit, Martins then tried to turn and bring the ball up field.

Deportivo Cali’s players were not pleased one bit.

Medellin is the former club for Porto star Jackson Martinez, Inter Milan’s Juan Cuadrado and current Colombia coach Jose Pekerman of Argentina.
