U.S. Fan Captures Incredible Instagram of John Brooks’ Game-Winning Goal

By 06.17.14


John Brooks’ improbable goal to lift the United States over Ghana will go down as one of the most heroic moments in American soccer history. It set off wild celebrations from the Atlantic to the Pacific and had strangers hugging in public. By now you’ve seen it dozens of times — but not like this.

A fan seated near the corner where Graham Susi took his service captured the iconic moment with his phone. The footage is way better than anything you’ve ever posted on social media.

Good work, Randy J. Kim, for making us feel like we were there without the unsettling process of spending thousands of dollars.

About Kyle Koster... Whenever you read a blog and think, "this is something that didn't need to be on the internet," you can bet I am responsible for it. I left a promising career in actual journalism to make GIFS and watch sports. No regrets. Oh yeah, I talked to Justin Bieber once and it was OK. Send tips/tell me I suck: or
