Beckenbauer was known as 'Káiser'. One of the best defenders of all-time. One of Bayern Munich's legends. After his team's defeat at Camp Nou, Beckenbauer said he "didn't understand" why Müller was subbed by Gotze. However, when watching the second goal by Leo Messi...

Back in 1968, Beckenbauer (23 years old) suffered a similiar action. The Kaiser was Pele's Boateng in a similar play where the Brazilian striker nutmegged the German. This video has been provided by the Brazilian journalist Thiago Arantes. 

Pelé, 3 times World Champions, showed his skills in a very similiar play to that great goal from Leo Messi at Camp Nou last Wednesday.
