dragonball“He is one of the greatest icons in the entire history of the entertainment industry, and to a greater or lesser extent the reality is that everyone knows the figure of Goku. This character, who today hui can rise to the level of legends like Mickey Mouse or Mario, is no stranger to homages, and in fact football is a sport in which we have seen many fans (and football players) remember the figure of Goku. This is precisely something that has happened in Africa.

Super Saiyan Son Goku Takes Over African Football

So I leave you with the incredible montage made by the fans of the CAF Champions League (essentially the Africa Cup of Football) to illustrate when Son Goku becomes Super Saiyan (via DBHypeName):

This was the tribute Goku received on a soccer field in Africa
  • As can be verified, the tribute consisted of three different phases by the fans.
  • In the first phase you can see a series of posters that shaped the Goku in his basic state.
  • In the second phase, the posters are modified to form the letters ‘Beast Mode’, the ‘O’ being represented by a Dragon Ball. This phase is the one that gives rise to the moment of Goku’s transformation.
  • In the third phase represented by posters, it is when goku appears in super saiyan, having thus recreated for the fans the moment of the transformation of the protagonist of Dragon Ball. Without a doubt, one of the coolest tributes the franchise has received on a football field.

In case anyone is interested, the match in which the tribute to Goku was made was Wydad – Simba, with a penalty shootout victory in the first 4-3 (I’m sure Maldini saw this match with a lot of tension). On the other hand, it should not be forgotten that Goku’s Day is just over a week away, and this year’s could be very important as there’s reason to believe there will be a major ‘Dragon Ball’ announcement.. I invite you to take a look at the article I shared because I really think it’s worth it this time.
