    Answers to mine:

    1. Nayim from the halfway line! Nayim scores from halfway against Arsenal in a mid 90s Cup Winners Cup final (maybe it was Uefa Cup?) in the last minute to win the game. Seaman ponders wtf just happened and prepares himself for more of the same in 2002.

    2. Sweden setting up a free kick, They cheekily roll the ball along to Tomas Brolin who scores a famous goal against Romania in the 94 world cup. Some kid tried to do this at training days later but everyone was onto it.

    3. Higuita Scorpion. Again, all the soccer kids were trying this at school the next day.

    4. Peter Hoare the prick

    5. Eric Cantonas Kung Fu Kick in 95. Kicked the shit out of some dude in the front row. Great moment.

    6. Gazza scores a great goal against scotland at Euro 96

    7. The great Fab Rav

    8. The legendary Ali Dia got signed by Southampton after his friend pretended to be George Weah and called the club and said Ali Dia was his cousin and that he was a great player. Turned out to not be George Weah's cousin and turned out to be the worst player ever.

    9. Dennis Bergkamp scores one of the best world cup goals ever against Argentina.

    10. Kluivert gets the winner.

    11. Lars Ricken

    12. 11 silly blondes from Romania.

    Will Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo finally step up at a WM? If either or don't have a good tournament they can't be considered amongst the greatest ever and Cristiano Ronaldo especially will probably be playing his last WM where he can have a significant impact. I think he will he's in good form this season and that should carry over to Brazil. If Messi doesn't he might be able to squeeze in another WM at a high enough level, he was still in good form this year too statistically but they do say he's burnt out and had injury concerns so he might not be 100%

    Ibrahimovic is absent so he's done and well Rooney :lol:

    Messi has a far kinder draw than Ronaldo. Argentina won't have a hard opponent really until the quarters whereas Portugal might not make it out of the group.

    Way to turn a pretty good thread so far into whatever the f**k this is that you've turned it into.

    The Best player ever didn't play in the World Cup finals...

    Yet won more silverware than Liverpool last season...

    Poor Stevie Me. How we all felt for him.

    I was at that game!!

    First 89 mins was rubbish.

    Don't remember much after that. I thought the second goal was a replay of the first one as I'd just finished celebrating. Took me a second to realise you don't get replays when you are at the ground!!! :lol:

    I finished up in a different section of the ground about 20 rows forward. God knows how I got there without breaking anything!!

    Nice day out. Always felt sorry for Kaffour. Collina had to physically help him up. A few years later when Bayern beat us he celebrated like it was the best thing ever. Stopped feeling sorry for him them... :)

    You can't be considered the Best if you can't help your country qualify for the Finals in the first place (whether that country be NI or Wales).


    Good for you that you count beating a Championship club in a one-off game as silverware.

    Take this bullshit in to another thread FFS

    Anyway, back to the thread. Favourite world cup kits!

    Germany 1994

    Brazil 1994

    Croatia 1998

    Mexico 1998

    Argentina 1998

    Argentina always have the best jersey along with Croatia IMO but I liked this version the best with the solid white under the arms. Milan's version was awesome too with the red and black.

    I actually used to really love the 98 England Jersey:

    [​IMG]

    Also I liked Germany's 1990 away jersey:

    As a former goalkeeper gotta throw a GK jersey in too and was there ever a better one than Jorge Campos' in 1994?

    Yes you can.

    It is that simple, surely even you can get it?




    Yup, good for me I counted a bit of silverware as silverware.

    Worse season since the 80's, and won more than Liverpool. :)
