Benjamin Pavard's Incredible French Wondergoal, In Extreme Slow Motion

Yeah, yeah, we GIF’d this earlier but something this spectacular deserves the full Deadspin Video treatment. Perhaps the goal of this year’s World Cup, Frenchman Benjamin Pavard—who cashes checks from, uh, Stuttgart—hammered home this half-volley with, shall we say, elan.


This is a Deadspin Video, in which strange sports moments are slowed down to ridiculous speeds and matched with indie music. This video features “Aging Spinsters” by The 6ths. See previous episodes here. A Spotify playlist of every song used in Deadspin Videos can be accessed here.
