    Alternatively, you can see highlights of pretty much all the shots, this goal included, on the espn gamecast.. http://soccernet.espn.go.com/gamecast?id=264067&cc=5901&ver=us
    Brazil looked honestly relieved after that.

    what’s the announcer say: “I’m not sure if that was a shot or a pass….”

    what’s with the english thinking every great brazilian goal is a mistake? david seaman ’02 anyone?

    good point on ronaldihno in 2002, but *that one* was a cross that was bending away from goal and magically tucked inside the post of the ponytailed one. he would claim it, but it was a cross.

    look how Maicon hits that ball, it has the look of a shot from a player whose team has been shackled for some time. i see no intent to cross whatsoever.
