    Michael Laudrup, Denmark v Uruguay, 1986.

    I can remember recreating that goal about a million times during the summer of 1986.

    Careca, Brazil v France, 1986.

    Arguably the last gasp of the old Brazil.

    Julinho, Brazil v Hungary, 1954.

    I love this strike. Try to shut out the background music.

    Gerd Muller, West Germany v Italy, 1970.

    Clearly, the defenders here behave like clowns, but its a small masterpiece of alertness from the striker. The instant the ball heads in the direction of the goal Muller is on the move, just in case something drops his way.

    Dennis Bergkamp, Holland v Argentina, 1998. (With suitably hysterical commentary).

    Just beautiful.

    Bobby Charlton, England v Mexico, 1966.

    Difficult as it is to put out of one's mind the dismal waxwork who travels the globe spreading the religion of Manchester United, the fellow could play.

    2010 Gyan goal against the US. This goal meant so much and it was a great moment for Asamoah

    I've been staring at the above post, and thinking, 'Is that a still rather than a video, or is last night's alcohol causing me to miss something?'

    Goal 1:30.

    Still one of the most terrible awful attack on beautiful football. The Schumacher assulat obviously, but also the numerous awful tackles from behind and Schumacher taunting french fans after the game.

    There's been a lot of great World Cup goals through the years. From 1994 I always liked the Swedish free kick goal vs Romania:



    and the Hagi goal vs Colombia

    Maybe my favourite all time World Cup goal. The time in the game too. The silkiest couple of touches from Bergkamp to control and best the defender, and the thunderous finish.

    Another classic from ‘98. A cleverly worked set piece.

    Saeed Al-Owairan's great run in 1994.



    Based on his celebration, you would have thought Rachid Yekini scored the most difficult goal ever and that goal won the WC.

    Not a goal but Zidane making the stacked 2006 Brazilian team dance like strippers for 90 minutes in the WCQF was a sight to behold.

    I can't even imagine what it was like to be alive when this happened. I was born some three & a half decades after this happened, but watching this match (or just its highlights) still gives me chills...and I can't help but pump my fist every time I see Rahn's equalizer. The Mighty Magyars really were just on another than anything we saw until the Brazilian golden age of the late 60s and the total football generations in Germany & the Netherlands...and our semi-pros left them WC-less :yo:




    And sorry Pedro, but I do still like to re-watch these :naughty:



    Even though this one is still my favorite:

    Roger Milla scoring against Argentina in the opening match in 1990 WC was unforgetable. The goal itself wasnt much, but him and Schillagi from Italy was the stars of that tournament.

    In general:



    The second one is simple. The way that final was played, there would never have been a less deserving team of winning the World Cup, and it was justice.

    Last one:



    That Maxi afterward wound up playing for my favorite team and scored some sweet goals was like icing on the cake.

    Forgive me being a spoilsport, but it was Francois Oman-Biyik who scored that Cameroon goal.

    Obviously, Milla's time would come.

    I'd agree it was a stunning result.

    Not one of my favourite goals but I do however love Crouch's terrible robot celebration.
