Italy legend Giorgio Chiellini is known for his no-nonsense defending but he showed a new side to his game with a glorious assist for Los Angeles FC.
The nine-time Scudetto winner made the move to the city of Angels in the summer and became yet another high-profile addition to the MLS.
Gareth Bale was also snapped up by LAFC in an attempt to add that all-important quality in attack. However, against FC Dallas, it was Chiellini who proved he’s much more than a tough tackler.
He set up Cristian Arango’s opener in exquisite fashion with a type of pass you would not expect from the 38-year-old.
Chiellini carried the ball out from the back towards the halfway line and spotted Arango making a smart run in behind.
The Juventus icon then delivered a stunning outside of the boot pass that took out the entire Dallas backline and ended up right in the path of Arango, who dinked the ball in.
World-class playmakers like Lionel Messi, Luka Modric and Kevin De Bruyne would have been proud of the sorcery conjured up by Chiellini.
However the game ended in defeat for 10-man LAFC as Jesus Ferreira struck twice in quick succession in the second half to give Dallas the victory.
Still, Steve Cherundolo’s side remain top of the Western Conference, with a nine-point lead over Austin FC.
