Leeds United fans were fawning over a piece of skill from Kiko Casilla during their 4-0 win over Middlesbrough.
Is this finally Leeds' season?
After being put under pressure by an on-rushing Ashley Fletcher, the Spaniard coolly dinked the ball past the sliding forward (via Leeds Utd).
The skill drew praise from all quarters with one fan of the club asked for the ‘keeper to replace Kalvin Phillips in midfield.
Play Kiko in place of Phillips

The former Real Madrid man has been embroiled in controversy this season after he was charged by the FA for racism aimed towards Charlton Athletic’s Jonathan Leko (via BBC).
Casilla has been in superb form for the Whites this season, keeping 10 clean sheets in the 19 league games he’s played for Marcelo Bielsa’s side (via Transfermarkt).
The fans were full of praise for the 33-year-old’s show of skill and composure to coolly dink the ball over Fletcher as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Yorkshire faithful:

He’s not just a goalie but plays Sweeper as well. It’s like playing with 12 men. No wonder we’ve the best defence in the League.
