    Nice selection but I honestly prefer the Kaka assist to Crespo against Liverpool to the Rui Costa one, quite similar but the perfection of Kaka’s pass was fantastic.

      Have to agree with you. I was originally going to add the Kaka pass, but thought it was just too obviously superb.

      Highly Disagree 100%
      Rui’s pass to Sheva shits on Kaka’s Pass to Crespo
      Rui’s pass caught 5-6 galacticos in their sleep…it was unexcpected like in a matter of second he just slipped it through to Sheva

      That assist really should be number 1 in this article

    I agree with the Guti one being top 3, but I personally prefer Beckham’s to Guti’s 🙂

      Same. They’re not listed by quality, they’re just 5 good assists.

    This is one my favourites purely for its impudence

      Surprisingly, I don’t remember that one at all. Great call.

    If beckham was brought up in Spain he would be a deep-lying regista.

      Probably, be particularly similar to Xabi Alonso I’d imagine.
