The team of Darren Urqhart, Thomas Smith and photographer George Logan recreated some of soccer's most memorable moments using children as stand-ins. The photo series spans decades and covers many athlete mishaps. The series accurately recreates iconic moments like Diego Maradona's "hand of God," Zinedine Zidane's headbutt, Mario Balotelli's "Why always me?" goal celebration and even Luis Suarez's latest biting incident.

With the recent corruption scandals involving FIFA, Urqhart and Smith spurned a timely discussion regarding the economic side of the game. The project was meant to ask if the money-obsessed sport still provides good role models for young kids.

Although the use of children makes light of these situations, it also works as an apt reminder of the purpose of creating such a collection.
