A Lot Of Hours Were Spent On Roberto Baggio's Magical Kicks Game

Forget about the Premier League Goal of the Season and the FIFA Puskás Award. It's always been about who could score the best free-kick on Roberto Baggio's Magical Kicks -- and it looks like we might finally have a winner, folks.

YouTuber ellisbryanslcfc sweetly strikes a shot up and over the wall into the top-left corner of the net.

Check it out:

What a shot. Take a bow, sir!

Magical Kicks was difficult as a child in school -- that is, when the uppers weren't blocking websites to stop kids playing it during lessons -- but to hit a shot like that is hard to break down.

It makes no sense, especially with how it flies through the air and lands over the 'keeper's head.

Of course, we're talking about Magical Kicks here, so the wind played its part with the curve.

"How in the hell did you do that free-kick? I'm trying now [and] it won't work," one commenter said.

Another user added: "Great goal, but it was bittersweet for me. It brought back the memory of Ronaldinho's goal against England in the World Cup [in] 2002."

Strong praises indeed.

What did you make of the goal? Done one better?

Let us know in the comments.
