It looked pretty sweet the first time round, but the Brazilian Air Force have released footage of Neymar’s third-minute golazo during Brazil’s opening Confederations Cup group tie against Japan which shows the gorgeously-struck goal from an altogether more unique perspective.

One of the FAB’s unmanned military drone planes was passing over the Mane Garrincha stadium at the very moment Neymar cracked in his instinctive strike against the Japanese, and they’ve been good enough to release the intriguing footage…

How cool is that? Very bloody cool.

  2. Me says:

    Any word on how soon FIFA is going to file a lawsuit against the airforce for copyright infringement?

  3. Nuno says:

    The reporter is saying there were 2 drones monitoring the game, so given the manifestations over the not-so-wisely-spent money in Brazil over last months, I don’t think this was very wise to release…

    Yes, after all, with which purpose a $25 million drone should be used for?

    Originally, Brazilian government invested $900 million in robots and drones, in order to promote security for the 2014 World Cup. Then the Brazilian police has begun its usual brutality against the populace to prevent them from complain about the costs of the Confederation Cup and 2014 World Cup.

    When Brazil was granted the right to host the World Cup, back in October 2007, the stadiums were to be built with private capital. However, the arenas ended up depending on public funding, costing to the Brazilians taxpayers billions of dollars.

    Apart from that a cost overruns and allegations of corruption in the building, and overhaul of 12 stadiums that will host the global soccer event — there is an investigation in progress by both chambers of Congress.

    The protest started because the spending on the stadiums were made without a process by which the public’s input on matters affecting the Brazilians was sought.

    Therefore, the Brazilian government can not use its drones to show the world the police truculence. Therefore, they used the drones to show Neymar making a goal against Japan, directing the attention away from the audience.
