The third edition of Moves Masterclass features the ‘Hocus Pocus’. This move has been used in matches by numerous players, namely Ronaldinho, Roberto Taddei, Anderson and Diego.
However the move got its name when it was performed by a Swedish footballer named Christian Wilhelmsson. He pulled the move off in spectacular style when playing for Anderlecht in the Belgian first division. When he’d completed the move, as he passed his opponent leaving him baffled, the commentator cried “…Hocus Pocus!” referring to Wilhelmsson as some kind of magician – thus leaving people to name this move the ‘Hocus Pocus’.
