Zidane’s Wonder Goal
Published by marco on
Real Madrid won the European Champion’s Cup for the ninth time on Wednesday, on a goal from Zinedine Zidane that was simply amazing. Goal.com (UK version) has Zidane wonder-strike clinches Real´s ninth European Cup, which has the best coverage I could find.
“Roberto Carlos sent a speculative looping cross into the area and the French international midfielder showed wonderful balance and composure to lash an unstoppable volley into the top corner.”
I didn’t find a video, but this is pretty good. It’s a long series of still images showing the goal from different angles…almost like a video. You have to go to the article, then click the link under the first paragraph. Click ‘next photo’ to go through the pictures like a flipbook.
Update: That’s not the wonder-goal…it’s a goal versus Deportivo. That’s pretty disengenuous.
Update: This goal is really hard to find, but kavorka has found a list of video highlights and goals. He says the quality is OK, but it’s in RealVideo format. Go to Madrid win ninth European crown on UEFA’s site, then look on the right, in the second box down to find “Related Interactive”. Videos are at the top and include “Highlights” and “Goals” in high and low bandwidth flavors.
