Always loved this assist from Nani, had to get it through 3 players while on the move.

Iniesta starting around 2.58 in the video, both the footwork and pass are incredible.

Socrates is such a cool name for a footballer.

Came here to post this. You will never see a better cross again. Simply perfect.

I know it's not as deep as Beckham's but he shrugs off a challenge and Giroud doesn't have to stretch to make contact.

Wonderful skill, balance, agility, deftness of feet. The ball itself is superb of course but given the space and the marking it wasn't that difficult a ball to play for a player like Pogba. Still perfect execution though.

Not even his best assist

Guti is the owner of the best assist ever. No question.

Has to be Kaka to Crespo for me.

It's the most inch perfect long pass I've ever seen and it came directly after a lovely bit of skill that completely mugged Gerrard off.

Gerrard hit a brilliant pass to Owen for his last ever Liverpool goal I think, can’t find the vid though.

Beckham’s to Ronaldo at Real was special and has already been posted.

Pogba for Griezmann last year I think was fecking brilliant too, posted a few above.

My visual contribution would be this one for Javier Portillo though, by Zidane:

Perfect weight executed very quickly on the turn against one of the greatest defence ever. Savicevic against Milan.

Some of my favourites that have already been mentioned have to be Kaka assist vs Liverpool (my favourite), Blind assist vs Spain and the Fabregas assist vs Burnley.

Giggs assist vs West Ham has been mentioned and here's the video.

My other favourite is the Ronaldinho assist vs AC Milan from 0:29
Ronaldinho's is my favorite. Shrug off a prime Gattuso in midfield, then casually (I can't emphasize this enough) loft a ball over Milan's backline to an onrushing Giuly.

Cantonesque or Scholesque
Not talked about enough because it was a friendly or qualifier. The way he fooled the whole defence by pretending to shoot and just dinked it over into the empty space is outstanding. The run and finish was perfect too. It deserved a bigger stage.

Very underrated..
