Did Vinicius mean to control a pass with his back?

Zinedine Zidane sent on Vinicius for the final 15 minutes of Real Madrid’s 3-2 victory over Villarreal and the Brazilian was very involved as he made his first appearance under the Frenchman.

One of the most interesting moments came in stoppage time as he controlled a long crossfield pass with his back, before spinning around and running into the box to win a corner.

But did the Brazilian mean it?

The fact he looked a little lost after the ball hit his back suggests that it maybe wasn’t intentional, but it’s impossible to know when talking about a player with the capacity to pull off the incredible.
