Marcelo Brozovic is quickly becoming our favourite player in world football after he performed his signature sliding block for the second game in a row.
In the 2-0 Champions League defeat to Barcelona at the Nou Camp last Wednesday, the Croatian became a viral sensation when he prevented Luis Suarez's goal-bond free-kick from hitting the back of the net by sneaking underneath the ball and blocking the effort.
It was a genius bit of play that Lionel Messi enjoyed whilst watching on in the stands.

That's how to defend the under-the-wall free-kick :white_check_mark:

Brozovic then gave a name to his unique piece of defending by calling it 'the crocodile' on Instagram.
But if you thought it was just a 'one and done' kind of thing, you couldn't be more wrong. Brozovic is keeping the gimmick strong by attempting the very same move in the 3-0 win against Lazio tonight.

The 25-year old scored the second in a memorable away victory at the Stadio Olimpico but his best moment was again him going to bizarre yet superb lengths to thwart a free-kick under the wall.
He just can't help himself, can he? Brozovic is well and truly revolutionising football one slide at a time.
