In an age where football is becoming less about individual skill and finesse and more about team tactics and defensive responsibilities, some players and their style of play are like a breath of fresh air.

I’m generalising here, but fans and spectators want to be entertained and it’s generally not the team players who provide most of this entertainment. It’s not the Matic’s, Khedira’s or Mascherano’s of this world people want to see when they go to a football stadium, be it a digital or a real one.

People want to see players who are prone to skipping past defenders elegantly, people want to see a great piece of skill and entertainment. Sure, we admire the defensive qualities of players like Chiellini and Terry, or the pin-point passing of men like Xavi and Pirlo or even the cool killer-instinct of strikers like Toni or Diego Costa, but it’s the flair players—the ones who perform tricks—that generally entertain the most, again both in-game and in real life.

FM15 has not been kind to me in terms of individual brilliance, but I just happened to catch a glimpse of this elusive solo excellence.

And just for reference, this is the video-file that goes with it. There’s no real point to this besides celebrating a well-scored goal.

    I wish I saw more of it. Rainbow flicks and rabona’s instead of burger vans when coding in new stuff…
