Football matches are all well and good, but with players haring around tackling all over the place, it's difficult for anyone to really show off.

This is where the pre-match warm-up comes into it's own. In those precious moments before a game, players can muck about aplenty. Here's five videos of warm-ups that are as entertaining as any match.

5. John Burridge

A lot of players just go through the motions during a warm-up. This is not something you could ever accuse John Burridge of.

4. Lionel Messi and Dani Alves

There are loads of videos of Messi and Alves showing off out there, but this could be the finest.

3. Cristiano Ronaldo

Of course, if Lionel Messi isn’t above a bit of showboating than you can bet your bottom dollar that Ronaldo has to go one better.

2. Michael Brown

The finest moment of the Leeds player’s career was when he smacked a ball against pundit Martin Keown’s head during a warm-up. Keown doesn’t look amused.

1. Diego Maradona

Quite possibly the best football video on the internet. The greatest player in the world elevating a very mediocre song to fine art.
