Angel Di Maria delighted the Argentina crowd on Tuesday night with a nutmeg of Vinicius Junior in the first half a 0-0 World Cup qualifying draw against Brazil.

Amid a cagey opening 45 minutes, Di Maria slid the ball backwards through Vinicius Junior's legs, earning a loud reaction from the home fans. However, the Brazilian pulled off some beautiful skills of his own later in the match, including a successful rainbow flick.

Brazil's unbeaten run in CONMEBOL qualifiers this term has now extended to 14 matches, while Argentina are in second place in the region.
