Spain was one of the most feared teams in Europe and the world at one point. They dazzled the world with their tiki-taka style of play on the pitch, not to mention the skill moves that their world-class talent could pull off.
Enter Juan Mata, who once made Spain teammate Raúl Albiol look like the biggest chump in the world when he skilled past him during a training session.
Check it out:
That's some boss skills from the Manchester United star.
It's not surprising that the Spain players absolutely lost their minds at his skill. Albiol can be seen walking away from Mata, probably in shock that he has been taken to school with that bit of skill.
"Albiol better call 9-Juan-Juan," one commenter wrote.
Another added: "After this, Albiol cried [for] days."
A third added: "I cried of [sic] sympathy for Albiol after I saw this skill."
Somebody needs to show that video to EA Sports and ask how Mata is only a four-star skiller in FIFA 19.
For me there is only one player at the club who epitomises the ethos of a true united outfield player and that is Juan Mata. The rest is chaos, bar De Gea. Play him to his strengths and he will score and create consistently.- Snooker [email protected] (@snookerbastards) 29 September 2018
Juan Mata just waved at me because he knew who I was. I don't know how to deal with this situation. pic.twitter.com/l3ALY2LpAe- Sam Homewood (@SamHomewood) 22 September 2018
