The Beautiful Game: Football meets ballet

The English National Ballet company has combined the diverse worlds of football and ballet in a new work entitled 'The Beautiful Game: A Football Ballet'. It features the 10 greatest moments in football as voted for by over 20,000 members of the public.

So which moments have made the shortlist? Maradonna's second goal against England in '86? Marco Tardelli's celebration in '82? No. But the list does include Gazza's infamous dentist chair celebration, Archie Gemmill's goal against Brazil and thankfully Rene Higuita's scorpion kick.

The full list of footballing moments featured in 'The Beautiful Game: A Football Ballet' is: Gazza's dentist chair celebration, Archie Gemmill's goal, Gordon Banks' save against Brazil, Maradona's Hand of God, Beckham's free-kick against Greece, Gazza crying at Italia 90, Rene Higuita's scorpion kick, Carlos Alberto's famous goal for Brazil, the Johan Cruyff turn and England's World Cup lap of honour.
