The FIFA Fan Movement came through this week with everything from an ageless display of skill to Roma's unique player signing announcements. Feast your eyes on the top five below.

Barcelona's Cruyff turn

From Nikos Vrantsis (Netherlands) On Tuesday, two of Johan Cruyff's former clubs came together to immortalise the Dutch legend. Barcelona opened their new Estadi Johan Cruyff with a youth team match-up against Ajax, and the surrounding ceremonies caught @NikosVrOfficial's attention. The stadium will be the new home for the Barcelona Women and Barça B.

Class is permanent

From Kubra Keskindakour (Turkey) Certain skills never fade, as kubrailefutbol shows us. Look at that control and concentration! Even when the video cuts off, there's no end in sight to this man's game of keepy-uppie. He may still be going.

From field to front office

From Kudzai Kanyere (South Africa) FIFA Legend Sun Wen was elected Vice President of the Chinese Football Association this week, recognised by @kudzaidee23 and many others as an important move. The joint-top scorer and adidas Golden Ball winner at the FIFA Women's World Cup USA 1999™ will focus on taking her country's national team programs to new heights.

Transfers changing lives

From Vanessa Tomaszewski (France) Roma's media team have come up with a refreshingly philanthropic way to announce transfers on social media. The club's partnership with Missing People entails that a notice of a missing person be included in each player signing announcement. Championsdudigital provided a wonderful update from Roma: one of the children featured was recently discovered safe and well.

First captain, now coach

From Adeniyi Bameyi (Nigeria) New Zealand's 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ campaign has a new, yet familiar leader. Former team captain and U-17 coach Danny Hay will lead the All Whites' qualification bid. From adeniyimustaphabameyi, Hay is also one of a select few New Zealanders to suit up in the English Premier League.
