Check Out This U.S. Fan's Perfect Shot of John Brooks' Winning Goal From the Stands

This comes courtesy of randy_j_kim, whose profile is private so who even knows what other shots he captured during his evening in Natal. But the video he released to the public is as good as one can take when you're sitting in the stands during an iconic moment. It's an excellent angle to show how John Brooks read Graham Zusi's corner before deftly gliding away from his defender and setting up the header. A beautiful set piece, really.

And then you get the drunken, raucous celebration which includes one guy's face going RIGHT into randy_j_kim's phone camera lens for nothing more than a few milliseconds. See if you can find him.

This isn't the Zapruder film, but be sure to add this to your "John Brooks goal reaction" YouTube playlist when the winter comes and all you want is that warm dose of patriotism to coat you like the Brazilian humidity.
