Amazing Goals Wasted in Meaningless Friendlies

Timing, as they say, is everything. Yet so often our greatest moments are sullied by prematurity or tardiness; the brilliant riposte to a tormentor that comes to mind forty minutes after an argument, the thirty-yard putt holed on the practice green. Footballers, too, experience the very same frustration; sometimes, acts of genius simply don’t get the recognition that they deserve.

*All of this, of course, has very little to do with Brazilian football. For this, I apologise.
