If you’re thinking, ‘That looks familiar…’ then you’re right – it’s amazingly similar to Diego Maradona’s wonder goal for Argentina against England at the 1986 World Cup. Watch both goals side by side after the click…

    ronaldinho is jealous

  8. Justin Russell says:

    Who is the best football player in the world right now? Cristiano Ronaldo? Kaka? Ronaldinho?
    For that gleaming moment in time,Lionel Messi was without doubt,THE BEST.

    He IS the next Maradonna

    ronaldinho has lost it…he is only performing with his better half

  12. Dash Hamid says:

    That was realy wonderfull, maybe never again.

  13. Tiago Noutel-Fontes says:

    One extraordinary goal is just that, extraordinary…doesn’t make a player the best in the world! Watch Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaká, Ronaldinho, Frank Lampard, Quaresma, etc. week after week and then you can tell who is fuckin’ best. A great goal…no more than that…You have to be constant to be the best!

  14. barca dicks says:

    fuck worst goal ever

  15. Justin Russell says:

    Yes,Tiago,I totally agree. If what you say is in answer to my comment on Messi,for that moment in time,being the best,I meant just that. Just for that unforgettable run and goal only. I can’t think of any other goal to compare,even going back a couple of years. To really be the best in the world needs to be proven week after week over a period of time,as you say.
    Player’s forms dip and climb,so I meant only that,just for his 10 or 12 seconds of brilliance,there was perhaps no one better.
    I still pick Ronaldinho as the world’s best,despite an “inconsistent season”,where he has scored 17 or 18 La Liga goals.One being another momentous wonder goal!

    yo yo bros football is a sport of beautiual skill joga bonito so dont go fucking it up by talking shit by the way Ronaldinho is the best in the world currently …or me?

  17. Rhubarb says:

    So – Maybe a great goal, but in no way close to that legend Bob Soames from the Reading over 30 Sunday league…

  18. Biswa says:

    I think ronaldinho is football jugglar.He should join in a circus.Though people think bersa means ronaldinho but it is very clear that eto’o & messi are the total footballer to make bersa no 1.
    Messi has proved how much effective he is as a match winner & how vital he is 4 bersa.

    great goal from an angel
    he is the wonderboy of soccer
    no doubt ronaldinho’s crown will be given to messi
    in the future messi will lead argentina to worldcup win

  20. satheesh says:

    messi will create the end of brazilian era in the world of football, for he is the best and will be the best for ten years

    anyone who knows anything about football can tell you thierry henry when fit is without a doubt the best player in the world. Him and cristiano ronaldo are the best by far
