The Weekend's Best Move, Courtesy of the Goose

[VIDEO PICK: Skills] Sao Paulo's Paulo Henrique Ganso -- the Goose -- demonstrated how to beat a defender who's climbing on your back.

Ganso, who made his Brazil debut against the USA in August of 2010 in New Jersey, performed our favorite dribbling of the weekend in a 2-0 win over Cruzeiro.

The 23-year-old came out of the Santos program that produced Robinho, Diego, Elano and Neymar.

His Goose nickname is, according to the Guardian, a reference to his long neck.

    As for why he acquired such a nickname, FIFA.com says, "Paulo Henrique Ganso was named after a ganso (goose), thanks to the club’s kit-man always greeting the arrival at training of O Peixe's gangly and long-limbed U-20 players with the words, 'Here comes that bunch of geese.'"
