Learn to play like the great Emile Heskey (Video)

Before you ask no, this is not a joke.

Australian sports broadcaster Fox Sports has decided to film Newcastle Jets striker Emile Heskey during matches so aspiring players can view all his movements and how he plays. They’ve decided to call it “HeskyCam”.

Viewers can opt to watch the camera as it focuses only on Heskey, the former England international seems to be enjoying the added exposure though; he’s scored four in his last four games.

Reports are unconfirmed as to whether or not Andy Carroll, Peter Crouch and Kanu turned them down beforehand and they had to settle for big Emile.

Here’s some of Heskey’s greatest moments and after watching I’m sure you’ll wonder why we haven’t put a camera on the great man sooner.
