[VIDEO PICK: Brilliant Goal, Save, Assist] Cristiano Ronaldo scores a stunning goal for Portugal, a keeper holds Lionel Messi scoreless in Sweden with an overhead kick, and Cesc Fabregas connects on a perfect pass in Qatar.

Messi’s ball may have crossed the line, but Isaksson’s grandkids won’t know that …

It took total team effort and had a fantastic finish, to say the least. This is what soccer is all about. Here, take a look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amSFGDnTslY
