There are a lot of near misses in soccer and mostly we pray they are transformed into goals. But this one would have been one of the best goals ever.
This almost goal was so good we could not let it go without mentioning it. The legwork of the Portuguese midfielder/winger Ricardo Quaresma was phenomenal. We understand when he looked devastated it was not a goal. Believe us we were devastated too.
We will be looking forward to more amazing footwork from this man in the near future. Most definitely in World Cup matches where he will play for the national Portuguese colors.
In the meantime enjoy this perfection for yourself.
