The greatest World Cup goals in stunning animation

June 12, 2014
The greatest World Cup goals have been immortalised in footage so resonantly that we can play them back in our minds with ease. Even now you can visualise Carlos Alberto's 1970 strike, Maradona's wonder goal in '86 and Owen's '98 solo effort. But this video shows all of those in a way you've never seen them before, and if anything justifies their acclaim more than ever. Artist Richard Swarbrick has built a reputation for his animation clips, and when he pairs his style with world famous sporting moments it has a magical effect. Will any goals from this year's tournament one day be made into animation? We hope so, but if not, these will stand the test of time - especially in this format.
