Warning: irritating commentator.

Commentator's not irritating, but you commentating the commentator IS IRRITATING.

People wouldn't have even noticed.

Well #(removed comment), I've been there too (I doubt that you were) and it obviously wasn't a fake. Grafite nailed that ball in the last minutes.
Check out Youtube for the German commentary, nothing about it was fake at all.

Explaining a joke beforehand, destroys the joke:

#3 Footbal is a combination of Luck and Skill. Luck is forced by skills. No skills no luck. Sure he was lucky the defender slide at that moment into that way using that foot. His skill was to react correctly to it.

#6 He was defended by 2 men. They simply could not touch him. Do this a 100 times more and noone will succeed at it again. It was his moment. Had nothing to do with the defending. The first defender was in the right position. The 2nd defender made the right tackle. He just simply outskilled them.

#(removed comment) The only fake on this particulair page is your comment. Probally based on jealousy because you can't dribble a ball past a stationary lamppost (stationary is used to emphasise the dramatics in downgrading #(removed comment) skills).

I played football (and still am) for about 20 years now. I never made it to any proffesional clubs but when I was younger I played at quite a decent level. I know skill when I see skill. This goal reminds me of the Final Germany - Holland in '74 when Johan Cruiff walked into the German box without anyone touching the ball and forcing them to tackle him hence getting a penalty kick.

Anyone wants to doubt the Grandmaster's Skills?
