[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.
