While training with the Spanish national team, Juan Mata showed off exactly why he is seen as one of the most skillful members of the Manchester United squad.

Mata brought down a diagonal pass, cut inside his defender and finished neatly past Iker Casillas during a practice match ahead of Spain's 2-0 win over Slovakia on Saturday.

His touch even had Pedro grinning.
