Those kind of footballers are a dead breed in Europe.
You still have that in Brazil because it's their founding tradition.
Even Neymar though is extremely wasteful with his attempted dribbling tricks.
You look at mega talents like Dennis Stojkovic and Nikon Jevtic and the biggest reason they didn't succeed is because dribbling and holding onto a ball doesn't work in todays fast countering world. Imagine trying to be a modern day Hagi against France's NT. One dribbling mistake and boom instant counter leading to a goal.
Same with someone like Halilovic from Croatia starting out. His game has completely changed since his early teens and he's now molding into a modern footballer. Coric too. Pjanic. List goes on and on.
Even C. Ronaldo stopped many years ago when he realized how inefficient it was.
Today's football relies on a lot of pressing and closing down on defense and not giving players enough space to do fancy tricks. You'll still see it from guys like Tadic and SMS but it's more direct and has an end purpose (getting by a single player or double-team) and then delivering a cross or a through pass. It doesn't last very long. A trick or two at best. I think it will eventually come back when players adjust to the new pace and style of modern football
The closest thing we have to this is Dusan Tadic. He's an elegant dribbler. He's actually an elite dribbler in the world. One of the best. We saw this at the world cup. They'd send 3 defenders sometimes to guard him. Though, his dribbling is usually confined to a specific space. Such as on the wings. He gets the ball on the wings. Makes a move or two and then delivers a beautiful cross.
That's just how it is nowadays unfortunately as I like creative dribblers as much as anyone else but in Europe it's less and less. Direct football with pace is king. The Mbappe's of the world.
Outside of EE, I really like the way De Bruyne plays. He starts from deep and makes a few long runs with plenty of
direct dribbling and technique involved and delivers a killer pass. IMO, he's one of my all time favorite players to watch. If you watched his 3rd place performance against England at the WC, you'd see what an amazing midfielder he is. Complete in every sense.
