While Valencia goalkeeper Jaume Domenech was martially his troops near the penalty spot, Kroos saw an opportunity to go for goal.

Kroos placed the ball down and quickly curled the ball into the net, despite the attempts of Domenech to punch it out.

The move not only surprised his teammates, but the camera director who was showing highlights of the previous move.

Kroos was praised for the genius and expertly crafted move.

Real Madrid went on to win 3-1 thanks to a starring role from Spanish midfielder Isco.

The Spanish midfielder was among the scorers in Jeddah, Saudi Arabai as Real sealed progression to the tournament's final on January 12, where they will meet the winner of Thursday's match between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Isco has regularly found himself being used as a squad player at Los Blancos, both during Zidane's previous spell and the il-fated reign of Santiago Solari.

But the 27-year-old is enjoying a new lease of life during Zidane's second stint - having started in three of Real's last four league matches and their previous two Champions League games.
