Watch: Mats Hummels Rolls Through Sublime Assist That No Centre-Back Has A Right To Make
By Mikey Traynor

Centre-backs and defenders in general are not supposed to be able to thread the needle in the attacking third, but nobody told that to Mats Hummels.

The 'ball-playing centre-back' cliché is a large reason for all the fuss over John Stones in England, but on the continent the trend has long been shifting to defenders being comfortable on the ball as we saw in full effect from Borussia Dortmund's captain at Anfield.

After casually strolling into the attacking third, he slid a majestic pass into Marco Reus who only needed one touch to finish.

That is a thing of beauty.

Keep an eye on Hummels after he makes the pass too, he already working to get back into position. A moment of magic from the World Cup winner.
