There's A Website Dedicated To Benjamin Pavard's Worldie At The World Cup

It has been an entire year since Benjamin Pavard's unbelievable strike against Argentina sent France through to the quarter-finals of the World Cup.

If you somehow didn't catch this cracking goal, Lucas Hernandez's cross from the left made its way across the pitch to the 22-year old right-back, who unleashed a powerful 'outside of the boot' half volley into the top left corner.

The technique, and subsequent spin, left Franco Armani with absolutely no chance

The definition of top bins? We reckon so.

In an online poll where over three million people cast their votes, Pavard's effort was deservedly named the 2016 FIFA World Cup goal of the tournament.

The strike was that good someone created a website dedicated to the screamer. Thank you, secondpoteaupavard!


Pavard was certainly humble after he netted that beauty against Argentina:

"The ball bounced up as it came to me. I didn't even think about it. I just tried to get over it and keep it down." he told FIFA.com.

"I was trying to hit it in the direction it came from, which is what the strikers always tell me. I didn't think it over, and when it went in I just felt so happy."

Do you think this is one of the all-time great World Cup goals? Can you name any better?
