I have neymar, who does step overs or lolipops whatever you want to call them lol, and was wondering which other players you have noticed doing them in the game. Seems to help him go past his opponent with ease.

Thanks

Players with a higher flair rating tend to do them. Martin Zeman does it all the time for me.

Ain't heard them called lollipops in years! I've only recently started to watch in 3d, so I've not reallynoticed really

I do believe it was ron Atkinson who coined the phrase lolipops.

As Stu said it has to do with Flair. Kehinde Fatai does it for me.

Ive seen Aguero do it. From the edge of the box and wiggling himself past the keeper.

Also you can call step overs - the eight's or the bicycles cause of the 2 '0's or the 2 bicycle wheels - at least that's why we in Croatia call them the bicycles.

Is that what they're doing on the 3d match view? I thought it was just the graphics spazzing out
