There’s been a feast of sumptuous skills gracing the global game this year and happily Soccer Am have packaged a fantastic little video of some of the tastiest choice cuts.
Like any good box of Christmas chocolates – there’s some of your classic treats to sample once more, including Phillipe Mexès melting a stunning bicycle kick and Luis Suarez undermining physics against Newcastle.
Add to that a delicious chipped rabona pass from Eden Hazard, more roulette spins than a Vegas casino and José Bosingwa showing there is a very fine line between showboating and complete idiocy. All in all, a heady mix of world class technique and audacious imagination.
Can you think of any displays of skill this year that are criminally missing here? We’ll go first…forget Ronaldo bewitching Barcelona, where the hell is Darren Gibson’s display of mind-blowing trickery!
