Marcelo Brozovic Performed His 'Crocodile' Sliding Block Again Tonight

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.

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.
