Spotted during the Czech Rep’s 2-1 defeat to Spain on Friday night, Milan Baros brings a clearance down from the ether with such infinitesimally precise control that is causes the ball to temporarily shift dimensions – or something like that anyway…

Like a blind, disorientated meerkat.

Also, by way of recompense for being a tad ‘late to the party’ with this one, please accept this handy ‘cut out and keep’ GIF of the incident…

I could literally watch that all day…well, perhaps not ‘literally’.

    I think the best part of this, and a part nobody has pointed out yet, is the Spanish midfielder (can’t tell who it is, sorry) that, while closing him down, raises his finger to point to where the ball is not. Ha! “Yup, keep looking up there, it’s right there, can’t you see it?? yoink.”

    Indeed. And it’s Busquets.
