Moacyr Barbosa

“Only three people have, with just one motion, silenced the Maracanã: Frank Sinatra, Pope John Paul II and me.”Ghiggia about his goal.

Moacyr Barbosa lived the rest of his life as an outcast. In his own words “The maximum punishment in Brazil is 30 years imprisonment, but I have been paying, for something I am not even responsible for, by now for 50 years”

Robert Green will be fried by the English press, but an outcast he will not become.

(Inspired by today’s goal, scored by Dempsey on Green)
