Pele’s digitally reconstructed goal


It's that time of the year where I make my annual post out of courtesy. I'm a big admirer of the advancements of technology. They just make things in life so cool, check this footage of Pele's most beautiful goal brought to life via digital mastery.

For those in attendance for Santos’ clash against local Brazilian side Juventus in 1959, the crowd were treated to what is regarded as Pele’s ‘most beautiful goal’.

Aged 18 at the time, the Brazilian star reportedly flicked the ball over the head of two defenders before embarrassing Juventus’ goalkeeper with the same trick to nudge the ball into the back of the net.

And what’s even more incredible is that Pele didn’t even allow the ball to bounce once as he bamboozled the opposition.

No actual video footage exists of the goal.
