Phil Foden's pass for Manchester City's opener against Club Brugges on Tuesday night was an absolute piece of art, and Joao Canelo's finish wasn't bad either.
After losing to Lionel Messi's wonder goal on Matchday Two, the Premier League champions were up against Brugge, who drew with PSG in Matchday One, on Tuesday.
City dominated the early going but it took a moment of pure magic to open up the scoring on the half hour mark, as Foden provided a brilliant assist.
The England midfielder played a ball over the top of the host's defence and found Canelo's run perfectly, with the full back controlling the ball with his chest before slotting home through the keeper's legs.

Noticed Foden playing/attempting these types of passes more frequently for England last week (probably done so before too but don’t watch much City) what an eye for a pass this guy has. Paired with his natural ability, England and City are in safe hands for the future. https://t.co/Fu3TEWuVYE— Talking Hoops (@talking__hoops) October 19, 2021
Foden and KDB have to be related in some sort of way https://t.co/EDRQsIhtwN— ky (@0TKyle) October 19, 2021
Obviously we don't have to tell you this for you to know, but: Phil Foden is an incredible footballer.— City Xtra (@City_Xtra) October 19, 2021
If City fans were worrying that their complete dominance of the first half wasn't going to go as rewarded as they deserved, they were soon placated.
With just two minutes of the first half to go they won a penalty, when Riyad Mahrez was caught by Stanley Nsoki following a lovely move.
Mahrez stepped up to make it 2-0 heading into the break.
