With Neymar getting remarkable attention for his world-class skill in recent weeks, here are 11 footballers who became famous for their five-star skill moves, including a South African who once made waves in overseas media!
Click through the gallery above to see 11 players who have become well-known for their incredible skills!
Five years ago, then-Orlando Pirates winger Thabo Rakhale showcased his kasi-flavoured skills during a Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs, with the player's trickery being so outrageous that they were discussed in the Daily Mirror in England.
Interestingly, however, that was not the first time the South African had trended worldwide, but who in Europe is popular for being so brave as to display these kinds of skills in competitive matches?
Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is undoubtedly the most high-profile five-star skill master in world football, with the Brazilian often pulling off rainbow flicks and nutmegs.
In fact, in 2016, former FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique was forced to jump to Neymar's defence when the Selecao international came under great scrutiny after he was accused of showboating in a match against Leganes.
The 29-year-old, however, was not inspired to produce epic skill moments from nowhere, but rather from his idol Robinho, who became famous in Brazil for his incredible flair before his big transfer to Real Madrid from Santos.
Arguably more skilful than both Neymar and Robinho was Ronaldinho, who became the catalyst for change at Barcelona following his 2003 transfer from PSG. Not only did Ronaldinho bring reward in terms of victories and trophies, but in his carefree style of expressing himself on the field with his never-seen-before dribbling technique.
Nigeria legend Jay-Jay Okocha was also hailed around the globe for his ability to get past his opponent with a fine piece of skill, as was former Premier League star Adel Taarabt, who is often referred to fans as a "streets will never forget" footballer.
The Moroccan first saw his name go up in lights after joining Tottenham Hotspur from Lens in 2007, although he was mostly thought of as skilful player without the end product to become a truly world-class one.
Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa is another high-profile player perhaps considered to be in this bracket, with the Brazilian having often gone viral on social media with clips of his jaw-dropping skill.
