Maicon scores for Brazil, beating the keeper at the near post. He takes a look into the box to fool the keeper and smashes the ball inside the post, past the poorly positioned North Korean keeper.
Did Maicon mean to do this? I think he absolutely did. Maicon is known for his ability to score goals and bend the ball. Here he strikes the ball with the outside of his foot to bend the ball into the near post. Take a look at the Maicon goal. Maicon scores near post from an impossible angle for Brazil versus North Korea at the 2010 World Cup.
