Like it is always when you play against Zlatan [Ibrahimovic], other strikers, these kinds of strikers — tall, good with their back to the goal — you have to avoid the crosses and you have to avoid the passes.
Bobby Murdoch, a hero of Lisbon, brought reassurance when, with his back to goal, he controlled the ball in the air with his right foot and pivoted to hook a wonderful left-footer high beyond Rangers Goalkeeper Erik Sorensen.
Unlike Willian on the opposite side, who was able to turn away from his defender time and time again to create danger every time he received the ball; Loftus-Cheek's big build and lack of experience in such an advanced area made him much less dangerous getting the ball to his feet with his back to goal.
And, if he is up front, he constantly plays with his back to goal, trying to finesse the ball down in a hope to do something fantastic but never achieves even the first part of that task as he always ends up on his arse, flailing his arms about at the referee.
It really was a wonderful goal in its creation, starting with a magnificent incisive pass from Winks out to Aurier down the flank, he whipped in a low cross which Llorente controlled with his back to goal, turning and firing past Perez in one sweet movement.
The Serbian skipper gave his country the lead in Novi Sad on 33 minutes when he won an aerial challenge with the Israeli keeper and then, from a stationary position on the floor with his back to goal, skilfully hooked the loose, bouncing ball over his head and into the net.
With the scored tied at 1-1, El-Shaarawy demonstrated his enduring quality with a magical back heel, leaping to meet Ervin Zukanovic's cross with his back to goal, before flicking the ball past Nicola Leani.
Sergi Roberto is very much in the now signature Barcelona midfielder mould — comfortable receiving the ball at pace into feet facing the goal or with his back to the goal, capable of gliding past one or two defenders at a time and an instinctive eye for a killer pass as well as knowing when a simple ball is needed to dictate the pace of a game.
He's strong on the ball, capable of holding up the ball with his back to goal and brushing off defensive pressure, but frequently lays it off quickly to his teammates — either back to the midfielders behind him or to the sides, before moving into space to receive it back again.
Griezmann opened the scoring just after half time following a wonderful, rapid exchange with Luciano Vietto — receiving with his back to goal and flicking the ball first time into the Argentinian's path, spinning and sprinting into the six yard box to meet the return pass.
