What is the football equivalent of a basketball "poster"?

I AM ZLATAN - Dean Mouhtaropoulos

There are football posters, and basketball posters. One is a photo, the other is destruction.

While we wait for any team news ahead of Wednesday's Bayern Munich clash, today, I've been thinking about something a little more general.

This thing is the basketball "poster". For those not familiar with this term, this is when one player basically destroys another player by dunking in the face of the latter's defense. Hard. Photographs of these moments are what make basketball posters, hence the term, etc. Okay. You know all that. Here's a recent and much-ballyhooed example:

My question is this: does this kind of thing, can this kind of thing, happen in football? The closest equivalent I can think of off the top of my head is this:

Or maybe this (scrub to 2:02):

But football is a finesse game. These clips are amazing, bewildering, and cause the same reaction as the Jordan dunk above, but something isn't quite the same. There is no violence, no complete humiliation, no moment that can be summed up in one photo. Maybe it doesn't matter. I don't know.

What do you all reckon? Is there a football "poster" equivalent?
