Lionel Messi (Barcelona), 2007

Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid), 2002

The Brazillian team in 1970 is considered the best of all time with lots of famous players such as Pele, Rivelino, Jairzinho, and Carlos Alberto. As a result, they made the final of that year pass into history.
In the World Cup final, Brazil met Italy and won 4-1. One of those four goals from Brazil went down in the history of world football.
With skillful dribbling techniques, Clodoaldo moved the ball from the field of Brazil and passed four players of the opponent team.
After two passes, the ball reached Pele’s foot before the King of Football gave a through to Carlos Alberto, who quickly had an outside foot shot. At that moment, the Italian goalkeeper can do nothing but see the goal going into the net in hopelessness.
The excellent coordination of Brazillian players creates an electric atmosphere all over the Azteca stadium. It can be regarded as the best coordination throughout all football seasons.
A few minutes before making this classic goal, Maradona also went down in history with the goal scored by his hand. This Argentinian player called it “The Hand of God”.

At the home field, after getting the ball from his teammate, he led it through all the players in the way. He ran with the ball until it was very close to the goal.
