The key to South American football philosophy is undoubtedly individual skill and flair. Think of all the great tricksters the continent has produced over the years; Robinho, Denilson and of course now Neymar are just a few capable of wowing audiences across the globe.

Another aspect of the game which seems to go hand in hand with this is the desire to humiliate an opponent with trickery.

Indeed, South American expert Phil Vickery pointed out while writing for The Blizzard that it is almost a national obesession to try and compound your opponent for Brazilian players in particular, sometimes to the detriment of the game.

But, there's no denying that when it comes off it can look pretty special, and Matias Mologni's sensational nutmeg is the perfect example of just that.

Playing against All Boys for Argentinian outfit Central Cordoba, Mologni bamboozles his opponent with an amazing piece of skill before rolling the ball through his legs and charging up the pitch.
