New York City FC star Talles Magno has gone viral after producing the coldest first touch we've ever seen in a game of football.
The MLS cup champions beat Inter Miami 2-0 at the Yankee Stadium, with Maximiliano Moralez and Heber grabbing the goals.
But 20-year-old Brazilian Magno was the talk of the town after killing the ball dead in exquisite fashion. At the end of the first half, the ball was booted right up in the sky and into the central midfield area.
The first phase of the play was like something you'd expect in Sunday League but then Magno changed all that with a jaw-dropping sequence.

The forward touched the ball down wonderfully and there was an immediate gasp from supporters inside the stadium. It was genuinely like the ball had been glued to him and the technique for trapping was so unique and smooth.
An opposition player rushed to press him but a little shimmy left him sliding across and into the shadow realm.
And fans on social media have been left in disbelief by the touch from Magno:

Magno himself has reacted to his scintillating skill on Twitter. In one tweet he wrote "come back here ball", while in another he said "she ran away".
Magno broke into the Vasco da Gama first-team aged 17 and made 65 appearances before making the move to 'the Big Apple' in 2021.
NYCFC are said to have paid for $8 million for his services but Magno has looked seriously good value for money and was named the CONCACAF Champions League's best Young Player earlier this year.
