Ankle Breakers: Including Messi's against Boateng ibtimes.com

Messi scored a brace in Barcelona's 3 - 0 win in the Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich last night. What everyone will remember the most is the unbelievable skill he used to leave Bayern's Jerome Boateng in the dust to create space and score his second goal.

In basketball, they call that an "Ankle Breaker", but it's happening all over the place...

Dante Hall: The best ankle breaker in NFL history?


Andre Iguodala: Didn't make the shot, but he took Quincy Miller's soul...


Pavel Datsyuk: Ice is slippery but there's no excuse for this...


Zlatan Ibrahimovic: We count at least 8 ankles turned to dust...


Steph Curry: Newly crowned NBA MVP put the moves on Chris Paul in the not so distant past...


Chris Paul: But CP3 has handles too, as Tony Parker found out...


Ronaldo: Pulling the "Elastico" out of his bag of tricks...


Teyana Taylor: gets crossed over, but gets extra points for getting on the court, bonus points for wearing Jordans (and we don't care that is was at a Jordan camp)

...and the most ridiculous ankle breaker you'll see in any sport, comes (surprisingly) from a soccer game...
