Eder Militao produced a hilarious yet brilliant moment during Real Madrid's Super Cup triumph over Eintracht Frankfurt.
Militao starred at the back as he kept a clean sheet in his side's 2-0 victory in Helsinki, Finland, on Wednesday.
He was exceptional in defence and will be a vital player for Carlo Ancelotti ahead of the new season, despite the club's signing of Antonio Rudiger.
The Brazilian showed off his pace and power - and performed his signature roll in the first half.
In the 24th minute, Frankfurt had a promising attack, but the move was stifled by an astonishing piece of defending by Militao.
He stopped the pass from going across the box, which saw him hit the floor.
However, he bounced back to his feet in one ultra-smooth motion to continue to thwart Frankfurt's attack.
Fans online loved Militao's commanding performance against Frankfurt.
