Right, we're going to put it out there,: this is the greatest goal never scored.

Sure Pele's dummy was outrageous, and Hans-Günter Bruns' must have been heartbroken after his lung-busting run ended in despair, but c'mon, surely every football fan around the world was just willing this one to end up in the net.

Sao Paulo trickster Ganso was tipped for great things a few years ago after forming an insatiable partnership with Neymar at Santos, but sadly it seems as though his star has faded while his former partner-in-crime has gone on to greater things.

Still, he showed a bit of the old magic against Botafogo over the weekend as he danced his way into the box, leaving a host of defenders in his wake, but just as he looked to have chipped the ball into the net, a covering defender had to ruin it by clearing the ball off the line. Spoilsport.

Check out the Brazilian's wonderful effort above!
