[VIDEO PICK: Magic feet] Dani Alves' sublime assist on Lionel Messi's opening goal for Barcelona during its 2-2 tie at Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday in the Champions League quarters had some calling it the best pass ever using the outside of one's foot, we investigate.

Alves terrorized PSG throughout, and the Brazilian's casually brilliant assist stopped traffic, leading the Guardian to find a murderer’s row of competition in the outside of the foot genre, each 30 seconds or less.

Apparently San Marino doesn’t always play England, because Wesley Sneijder’s beauty for the Netherlands came against the minnow in 2011 -- it's been viewed over 2 million times …



Eric Cantona made FIFA’s top 100 living players and the Frenchman is one of Manchester United’s greatest players ever. In 1996 he curled this sweet assist to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

    The best outside-of-the-foot pass I ever saw came from Dunga. I think it happened during the 1998 World Cup, and it went from one side of the field to the other. It was unbelievable, but it didn't result in a goal. Sneijder, Cantona, and Zidane are all nice, but this week's pass from Dani Alves was just too exquisite. And the fact that Messi finished it off with a nice, clean touch makes it even more impressive. No comparison, in my books. Hey, maybe that little pre-game warm-up between Messi and Alves helped their cause... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQVvg9heZ08
