Benjamin Pavard's Insane Pass Has Gone Viral

Benjamin Pavard made headlines for his brilliant performances as France won the World Cup in the summer, with his unbelievable goal against Argentina in the round of 16 victory quite rightly seeing him win the goal of the tournament.

But another genius piece of play from the Stuttgart defender has gone viral. It's from October 2016, when the Frenchman was playing in the second tier but has been doing the rounds again - with people well and truly waxing lyrical about it.

Receiving the ball in his own half just two minutes into the game, Pavard cuts the Greuther Furth defence in half with one glorious pass straight through the lines and in the path for his striker to slot home.

Like his gorgeous goal in the World Cup, it's so, so satisfying to watch and incredibly GIF-able.

If you want another sensational assist to watch endlessly on loop, Wigan Under 15's player Chris Sze produced something very special for Arthur Lomax to score against Rochdale recently.

What's the greatest pass you've ever seen? Sound off in the comments.
