The amazing thing about it is his intelligence and presence of mind to even attempt such a thing, he realized the goalie was so far out that the entire goal was empty, brilliant.
But after the high IQ bit, the rest is just execution,
I dont think it's as big a deal as people are raving about, as remarkable as it was.
When you say,
"best goal ever"
, you're setting the bar kindof high!
Ehhh, that execution is not "just execution", very, very few players in the world are capable of doing exactly that. If anyone else. Or as Arsene Wenger put it: "it's impossible for a normal athlete".
