Arturo Vidal has been a joy to watch in the Confederations Cup and he provided further goodness in tonight's final against Germany.
The Bayern Munich midfielder was incredibly unlucky to be on the losing side in St Petersburg after producing yet another all-action display from midfield.
And though Vidal was unable to add Confederations Cup to his impressive winners medal, if there was an award for 'Pass of the Tournament' then no player other than Vidal would win the award.
Prior to Lars Stindl's winning goal for Germany in the first half, Vidal fashioned a chance from midfield courtesy of some wondrous play in which he picked out teammate Charles Aranguiz, another Chilean who plies his trade in Germany, with a delightfully lobbed pass into his path.
You may need to watch this a few times to fully appreciate it:
You know the famous 'he sees passes no-one else sees' cliche that is thrown around a lot? It's warranted in this instance because the vision displayed from Vidal there is unparalleled.
If only Aranguiz was able to convert, and not saw his first touch allow Rudiger to make a wonderful last-ditch tackle then Vidal would have registered one of the best assists in recent memory.
Needless to say, Twitter absolutely loved the pass, and performance from Vidal tonight:

Loved that improvised pass from Vidal to play Chile in, sending it on even as he was falling, already off-balance. Wonderful footballer.
