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 ablity 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.
