that Beckham broke the American Football field goal record with a 64 yarder
well, the ronaldinho one where he hits the bar was...
the rooney one looks a lot more realistic though
It just seems a little too neat that the last thing you register seeing before the ball hits the camera is the nike symbol... Just seems a little to perfect y'know.
I don't doubt that he can do it, but I reckon theres some computer trickery involved there...
It's fake. I'm a geek and advanced it frame-by-frame, and you can see quite early on when it changes from a real ball to a CG one. Plus the shadow and spin of the ball just look a bit odd.
I agree though, I'm sure he could do it.
Monsters. Genius that was.
though i did hear a rumour Pirlo hit the ball of the cross bar 5 times, ala, Ronaldinho's fake advert recently for some publicity stunt for UEFA
of me in my pomp.
