Sivori utilized his dribbling skills and favourite move of the nutmeg (playing the ball between an opposition players legs) to defeat defenders. Primarily a left footed player, Sivori had the ability to score with his left, his right and despite his relatively short stature his head; this would sometimes see him receiving kicks to the face.
