Isco’s second professional goal was absolutely amazing

He showed all the skills that make him one of the world's best today

Thank you Zinedine Zidane.

You have given us Isco in the form of his life, in one of the best teams in the world.

Not only is the young midfielder absolutely bossing it for Real Madrid he has taken his form to the international stage and is set to light up the World cup next summer.

But where did it all start for the twinkle-toed Spaniard?

We have been trawling the football archives and come across footage one of Isco’s first goal at senior level.

It is everything you ever hoped it would be.

Back in 2010, before the Golden Boy award and the €30 million move to Real Madrid, Isco started his career at Valencia.

In a Copa Del Rey second leg against Logrones Isco opened his scoring account in professional football.

His second goal came in the same match and the footage shows you just how good Isco was even at the age of 18.

An expert demonstration of balance and dribbling, riding two or three challenges, saw the midfielder jink through the packed Logrones defence.

Several hacks and body charges come in but he rides them and slots past the keeper’s his near post.

While a lot of people tipped the former Malaga player for greatness, he had been out in the cold at Real Madrid under Carlo Ancelotti.

Thank you for bringing him back Zizou.
