by Ben Topliss

Manchester United midfielder Angel di Maria pulled off a cracking piece of skill while playing for Argentina against Uruguay at the Copa America on Wednesday.

Running at full speed, the 27-year-old somehow manages to nutmeg Cristian Rodriguez before leaving him for dead.

It appears that Di Maria knows full know what he is doing as you can see him hesitate before noticing the gap and carrying on.

There are few things scarier in world football than seeing Di Maria run at you with the ball at his feet.

Of course, the player didn’t have the best of times at Man United last term but there is no doubt that he is world-class.

The hope for United fans is that Di Maria can regain his confidence with Argentina before coming back to Old Trafford a rejuvenated player.

He may well be joined by compatriot Nicolas Otamendi, who has been heavily linked with a move to United in recent weeks.
