Robin van Por­poise

The World Cup may tech­ni­cally have kicked off the pre­vi­ous day, but this was the mo­ment that it re­ally took off. As did Robin van Per­sie, the first foot­baller in the his­tory of the game to lit­er­ally leap like a sal­mon. There is some ar­gu­ment over whether this was the best goal of the tour­na­ment, but there can surely be none that it was the most lu­di­crous.

A header from that many yards out is spe­cial enough. A fly­ing header from that many yards out is a bit silly. A de­lib­er­ately and im­pu­dently lobbed fly­ing header from that many yards out is the kind of goal that only ever gets scored in comic strips.
