However much you hate football, this is the kind of thing that makes it all worthwhile. Ah, say people, Ronaldinho is able to do that kind of stuff because he is Brazilian. We liberals know better than to believe any such nonsense.
When I was a lot smaller, I saw ex-England keeper Gordon Banks play for Fort Lauderdale Strikers in a friendly against Pompey at Fratton Park. It was all fairly lazy stuff, but then one of the yokels got a shot on goal. Banks anticipated and had already started diving to his right when he suddenly realised it was going the other way and–everyone is convinced of this–changed direction in mid-air and saved the bugger.
Banks was already past 40 then and had lost an eye in a car crash a few years previously which, I believe, makes this save even better than the famous one against, of all teams, Brazil.
