Memorable goals in diagrams

Brazilian illustrator pays tribute to the history of football

January 28, 2014  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

If there’s a country that will be in the sports spotlight in 20143, that country is Brazil. The 2014 World Cup is one of top sports events in this year’s calendar, and the expectation in that country is as high as it gets – both for the best and for the worst.

Of course that this is a topic that will gain lots of coverage from the media, both in print and online. We’ve brought you, for example, the fantastic series of infographics created by the team of Estado de São Paulo about the 12 world cup arenas, a project that won several awards.

Now, a different project from illustrator Marco Sousa brings you some of the most memorable goals in Brazilian football history, in national and international competitions.

From last year’s Confederation Cup final between Brazil and Spain to the historical win of Corinthians against Chelsea in 2012, the victory against USSR in the World Cup of ’82, Rogerio Ceni’s 100th goal (Rogério is the goalkeeper of São Paulo, and the highest scoring player in that position, ever), and many others from the Brazilian Championship, all illustrated in posters.

Marco made his research in YouTube and public radio recordings, and hand-draw all the illustrations, before digitizing them. If you’re a football fan, you don’t even need to understand Portuguese to appreciate Marco’s work. And we decided to do our own research, and add the video with the respective play after each one of the illustrations:
