We bemoan the lack of technically gifted players in the British Isles, but Thursday night, a young English player turned on the tricks in a European game.

Admittedly, it was Maribor vs. Wigan in the Europa League—and skills aside, Wigan went down 2-1 and saw their campaign come to an end in the group stage. But for the six seconds of this Vine video at least, Wigan's Callum McManaman owned the defence.

Wow them skills! Callum McManaman - https://t.co/s21ahobjkK
