Ahead of the pack

March 9 2007

I imagine a lot of people are familiar with Jared Borgetti’s sublime headed goal for Mexico against Italy in the group stages of the 2002 World Cup.

But I hadn’t realised quite how good the build-up was. A diggle on YouTube produced this video, which shows a sumptuous 15-pass move beginning with an impeccably timed penalty area tackle and culminating in surely the most artful header ever scored.

I reckon it must be up there with Carlos Alberto and Esteban Cambiasso in the list of the greatest ever World Cup team goals.

Shame their coach had such sweaty pits though.

    Quite extraordinary. Why would anyone cut that out?
