Video of kids re-creating the 'goals of the century' in their garden goes viral


Some goals are so iconic they have been passed down the generations.

Many of us are too young to actually remember Diego Maradona's infamous 'Hand of God' against England, yet somehow we can recall it in an instant as if we were there.

Sadly, however, at the moment none of us are able to make new football-related memories. All we've got is nostalgia.

Most of us also have an awful lot of time on our hands due to being in lockdown.

If you're blessed with a reasonable sized garden, that should at least give you the chance to brush up on your tekkers - just like a pair of kids who have gone viral for their attempts at re-creating legendary goals.

Former Hibs and Everton player Sean O'Hanlon took to Twitter to post a video of his children (presumably) doing a brilliant job of copying their heroes. 

So brilliant, in fact, that it's been 'liked' 126,000 times and has earned over 26,000 re-tweets, at the time of writing.

To the lads' credit, they manage to replicate all of the following: 

Wayne Rooney vs West Ham (2017)
Cristiano Ronaldo vs Portsmouth (2008)
Diego Maradona vs England (1986)
Ronaldinho vs Chelsea (2005)
Thierry Henry vs Manchester United (2000)
David Beckham vs Greece (2001)
Ronaldo vs Lazio (1998)
Robin van Persie vs Spain (2014)
Francesco Totti vs Inter Milan (2005)
Ryan Giggs vs Arsenal (1999) 
Rivaldo vs Valencia (2001)

All have a decent claim to the video's title of 'Goal of the Century' - but that's enough from us. Here they are: 

If the adulation of hundreds of thousands on social media isn't enough, they've also done enough to impress AS Roma. 

Totti's former club posted a side-by-side comparison and it's fair to say the likeness is uncanny. 

Fair play, boys. You've already achieved more than most of us will in our lifetime, let alone in isolation.
