In the 19th minute of this afternoon’s La Liga encounter between Celta Vigo and Real Madrid, Lucas Vazquez switched the play to Toni Kroos, when Zinedine Zidane’s trusted maestro crafted a chance.
Kroos showed us something pretty rare, which is saying something about a player of his calibre, as he displayed his perhaps underrated dribbling skills to skip past a Celta ace with a lovely tight turn.
The central midfielder drove forward before picking out Karim Benzema with a pass that was made to look effortless through a crowded area, the striker controlled the ball before tucking it into the net.
