Beautiful Animation Of World Cup Goals

z.jpg

Not yet shuddering with anticipation at the prospect of the 2014 World Cup? This breath-taking animation should do the trick.

From Richard Swarbrick, AKA @RikkiLeaks, the inventive talent behind other whirling, hand-sketched football animations you may well have spotted on TV ads and viral links over the last few seasons, comes his chef-d'oeuvre: the greatest world cup goals.

Everything from the glue-footed Brazilian antics of the ‘70s, to barely post-pubescent Michael Owen’s late '90s magic against Argentina have been wonderfully doodled to a searing score, sure to raise the hairs on any football fan’s neck.

The beautiful game, indeed.
