Brazilian footballers are special. The likes of Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Robinho, Rivaldo, Neymar, and Vinicius Jr have an aura about them.

The West Ham bench had a front-row seat for a special Lucas Paqueta show. The Brazilian not only assisted their winning goal against Anderlecht but also pulled off a brilliant touch, leaving the likes of Aaron Cresswell in awe, according to Give Me Sport.

Paqueta, who joined West Ham this past summer, was receiving a pinged pass, and in typical Brazilian fashion, he took an extravagant touch which only a few footballers can do.

Brazilian urge to entertain

Paqueta now joins a long list of Brazilians who've left a mark in European football with their 'Joga Bonito' style.

In that same match, Paqueta embarrassed an Anderlecht player with an audacious nutmeg. The likes of Antony, Neymar and Vinicius Jr have also pulled off skills like that. Paqueta was once booked for attempting a rainbow flick in a match, according to Goal.
