The creator of the "Hand of God" goal never likes to be outdone, but if I understand the commentary late in the clip correctly, this may become known as the "Heel of God" goal.

Somewhere, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has seen that and is practicing the kick.

My favorite off-field moment from today's thrashing of the Vile: The huge banner reading "David Moyes is a football genius" counterposed with Sir Alex looking like a trickster had stolen his favorite lollipop.

I think you have that backwards. The guy is clearly "Dar[ing] to be Zlatan" and he's working the First Step, "Start by trying moves that can't be done. Keep trying until you are Zlatan".

I think this might be my most favourite quote by an athlete in the history of everything.

Heh. Reminds me of Chuck Norris jokes. Only made in the 3rd person instead of my meme generators.

I just want to know if he's serious or not with these lines, like when he decided this year's World Cup wasn't worth watching once he was out of it.

Just to be precise, it's "Dare to Zlatan"; somehow, the dude verbing himself makes it all the more awesome.

Yeah, not sure why I threw in the "be"— that I edited Zlatan at all makes me nervous.

Your concern is appropriate. Captain Li Shang is choosing his weapon now. He has many to choose from.

Once Zlatan gets done firing the chefs and the car lot attendants, he may come gunning for you.
