Watching the Argentina Team score the famous goal involving 8 players and 24 passes was like playing a game of chess.
These guys, brought the ball forward with back pass and forward pass. Similar to how we move the pieces of chess game. The pawns in this case were the forward players, the guys running in from behind looked akin to bishop, knight & rook. There was no need for the queen and the king (goalkeeper) was solidly watching the moves from post.
These guys were just toying with the ball. They cut across the Serbians players like cutting the opponents pieces in the game of chess.
When the ball landed inside Serbians goal net, the opponents king had fallen.
Every time I watch this goal being scored, I see them only as a game of chess. For video of the goal click here.
