Mirror, mirror…

April 10 2007

Stumbled across this rather interesting video on YouTube this morning.

It depicts a number of very famous goals but in mirrored form, as if they had been scored at the opposite end of the ground and with a different foot.

It’s a funny idea, but makes for interesting viewing, if only because it suggests what it would have been like if players like David Beckham and Alan Shearer had been left-footed.

The only goal which doesn’t strike you as being odd is Zinedine Zidane’s sublime volley against Bayer Leverkusen in the 2002 Champions League Final, because he struck it with his (supposedly weaker) left foot in the first place.
