Bruno Xavier score is being called the greatest goal in the history of... beach soccer (VIDEO)

Bruno Xavier may not be a name familiar to most sports fans and beach soccer gets about as much respect as beach Frisbee in the U.S. but, after this goal on a sand-covered pitch, Xavier may become worthy of a single-named fame in Brazil — where the sport is wildly popular.

And now, many are calling this barefooted score the greatest goal in the history of the sport.

Xavier, considered by many the best beach football player in the world, scored the remarkable goal for Brazil against Germany in the Riviera Maya Cup 2014. Xavier juggles the ball past several players before faking out the goalkeeper and calmly nudging the ball into the back of the net.

The 29-year-old Xavier — the 2013 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Golden Ball award winner — led Brazil to a 9-4 victory over Germany.
