I am a World Cup fan, and since my American brethren are off today, how about a little something for the Europeans?

From the NYT article Ibrahimovic’s Goal: Best Ever? comes this assortment off incredible football goals.

Enjoy:

    I am definitely a fan of the “dribble through the crowd” amazing goals, like the Maradona and Best goals that Ritholtz posted. Watching that Best goal, I now see why I have heard commentators compare Lionel Messi to George Best. They both have that incredible ability to keep the ball when it seems impossible to do.

    But all of these examples are goals scored during ongoing play. I also love the laser-precise free kick, where the defense and goalie are left dumbfounded. The classic Roberto Baggio free kicks come to mind, like these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5fylZFTWVw
