If Sensible Soccer was your thing back in the 90s, you’re probably going to love this.

We’ve seen Grand Theft Auto’s retro bird’s eye view recreated recently by drone footage, and now one of football’s classic games has been given a similar makeover.

The team at Norwegian show Golden Goal equipped contestants with high-tech goggles to give them a bird’s eye view of the pitch – and then blew the whistle for kick-off.

The aim wasn’t necessarily to recreate Sensible Soccer, but it’s those long nights on the SNES that are brought to mind when watching the video.

That, and the Father Ted episode Escape from Victory
