A simple post tonight. To recognize a simple moment.
For all my thinking and writing about the fans, today I want to turn around and actually watch a moment on the field.
Tonight is about the goal. Not any goal the goal.
In an amazing display yesterday, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored all four goals for Sweden in their 4-2 win over England in a friendly. It wasn’t enough that he scored four goals though. In his typical against the grain way he made a mockery of FIFA’s candidates for Goal of the Year by scoring his fourth goal from an overhead kick that lobbed into the English net from about thirty yards out.
Check out the video, put it on loop, and watch the most beautiful goal you will ever see over and over again.
BTW: FIFA announced today that they would not consider Ibra’s goal for the Puskas (Goal of the Year) Award, because they had already selected the finalists. He’ll have to wait ’til next year.
