I can tell you my least favorite, and it wasn't in the cup, it was in qualifying.

mr_a: Goal?


Yeah, all I've seen are a bunch of dudes kicking a ball back and forth at midfield. I just assumed ESPN was showing 30 hours of warmup drills.

As an England fan, Michael Owen vs. Argentina in 1998.

As a soccer fan, Maradona's non Hand of God goal against England in 1986 is a thing of absolute beauty.

Tim Cahill's volley for Australia is still teh most beautiful goal of the 2014 tourney.

Germany vs. Argentina, 2010

Schweinsteiger dribbles through half the Argentine defense, waits for the keeper to come out to challenge him, then passes for the tap-in.

Know what would make soccer worth watching?  If played by hot naked women.

"What's the score?"
"Don't know, don't care."

The final goal, when they wrap this boring spectacle up.

That one on the first game where the goalie threw the ball into his own goal and scored a point for the other team.

/google it

Sorry, Manuel Negrete, Mexico vs. Bulgaria 1986. Nothing will ever beat that shot, ever.
