On the edge of your seat? Goals like this either get you standing on it or turn you into a vengeful loony who hurls bits of it at the telly.
Nayim vs Arsenal: Cup Winner’s Cup Final 1995
“Once of Spurs” Nayim’s lobbed effort in the 120th minute of the Cup Winner’s Cup final is one of the most spectacular and unbeleivable goals you will ever see. With nothing on and with time dissapearing Nayim speculatively smacks a lobbed shot at Seaman from the half way line and in classic Seaman style after a floundering attempt at the ball he ended up on his arse.
Bergkamp vs Argentina: World Cup 98′
If your going to score in the last minute you don’t usually care how it comes. But Dennis was a very special man, this is one of the greatest examples of finesse and finishing. In the last minute of the World Cup quarter-final following a long ball from Frank De Boer, Dennis has the head to take it past the man and rifle it into the roof of the goal. Magnificent. Check out the blokes commentary on the clip, it’s immense.
Beckham vs Greece: World Cup Qualifying 2002.
One of those moments when you remember why football is all worth it. In a tie against Greece at home, England needed a draw to qualify automatically. But they were crap. 2-1 down and two and half minutes into stoppage time, Beckham’s last minute 30-yard free kick took England to the World Cup in 2002. It was a horrific game to watch, but oh boy was it worth it when that went in.
Thomas Vs Liverpool: League Championship Decider 1989
When the gunners had to visit Anfield on the last day of the season they required a 2-0 away victory to win the league. Nobody gave them a cat in hells chance. But in the final minute after a Liverpool attack breaks down Arsenal broke one last time. Three touches and a deflection later Thomas is through on goal and a stranded Grobelaar would see the ball pass him and end Liverpool’s championship dreams. Unbelievable.
Solskjaer and Sheringham vs Bayern Munich: 1999 Champion’s League Final
Well, is there any reason to describe this? After one of the most one sided Champion’s League finals I have ever seen in which Bayern did everything but score a second goal, United stole the trophy in classic fashion. “They always score” – Tyldesley finally got something right.
