Football fan creates epic hour-long video of legendary matches

UEFA Champions League Final - AC Milan v Liverpool

Football fans have been left twiddling their thumbs in the absence of live sport recently.

The coronavirus pandemic means that athletes, much like the rest of us, are staying indoors to contain the spread of the disease and protect those who might be vulnerable.

As a result, it remains to be seen when competitions like the Premier League or Champions League will be returning to our screens whether they're played in front of a crowd or not.

It's left supporters scrambling around the internet to get their fix of sporting action in the mean time, reminiscing on moments past and sparking debates on social media.

It's become common place for fans to share nostalgic montages of Cristiano Ronaldo in his Manchester United days or Steven Gerrard tearing things up for Liverpool in his prime.

We could go on listing the amount of throwback content being produced right now until we're blue in the face, but we're inclined to think we've stumbled across the best of the bunch.

While, yes, it can be incredibly fun to video-hop on YouTube in times of procrastination, just imagine if all of your favourite footballing moments were ploughed into the same place at once.

Lucky for you, that could well be the case because YouTuber 'Vanemas' has created an epic, hour-long video showing some of the greatest matches in history back to back.

Epic hour-long montage

We're talking the 2005 Champions League final, Liverpool's comeback against Barcelona, Arsenal's 7-5 win over Reading, the Netherlands thrashing Spain 5-1 and so, so many more.

More than 25 matches have been steamrolled into the compilation with impeccably edited highlights, showing you just the juicy bits, to the point it's surpassed one million views in merely three weeks.

So, do yourself a favour, set aside some time, kick up your feet and enjoy the most dramatic moments the beautiful game has served up for us in recent years.

You love to see it. You really do.

There's nothing like seeing Zlatan Ibrahimovic score THAT bicycle kick, Lionel Messi bagging a last-minute winner at the Bernabeu and Lucas Moura deliver his iconic hat-trick at Ajax one after the other.

It just goes to show how emotive and special football really is, which is exactly why millions of people around the world are desperately missing the joy and togetherness it brings.

For now, sport is unimportant and rightfully spending time on the bench, but let this compilation remind of us the stunning moments it can bring and of which there will be plenty more when it returns.

Stay safe people.
