[VIDEO PICK: Magic feet] Another terrific two minutes of the best skills Europe has to offer enhanced by slick editing and put to music means its once again time to appreciate the Showboat series, where a heavy premium is always placed on aesthetics. This week’s edition of Soccer AM’s skill series begins and ends with a pair of great goals we shared last week, but there’s so much more to see.
Dimitar Berbatov’s smooth walk about 10 seconds in is one of my favorite skills this series has ever found. Jesus Navas, who always seems to be going full speed ahead, drops a stylish assist while traveling 100 mph. Eden Hazard shows once again he loves to make Rabona passes, while Johannes Ertl of Portsmouth gets a touch off his backside most weekend warriors can relate to. And then there’s the epic control and finish by Antoine Griezmann at the end. Just how did this young Frenchman pull that off?
