Nederlanders looking good against Ghana today. I'd say they're my next pick after Spain to win it, and thats depending on how Spain does with injuries.

I know how passionated "best goal" discussion can get, but i will try to explain my choice(with my poor english skills, not beeing a native speaker, i apologize in advance for that).

The Bergkamp goal is one of this really rare moments of technical perfect execution in a decisive moment.
You dream of controlling a pass and scoring like that in a game, you practice it in many training sessions and it may work out once or twice, but in a crucial situation it usually don't.

The Maradona goal against England is not a moment of technical perfection, it was a moment of taking advantage of situational circumstances using his undoubtlessly genius creativity.

I guess i'm getting too philosophical here

Are you guys joking? I am a big fan of Bergkamp and the Netherlands and Maradona goal against England was impressive. But seriously, best goal ever in a WC? Carlos Alberto goal in the 1970 final, Brazil-Italy!!!! Best team ever, best goal ever. Nuff said. There is no competition.

What are you talking about? Nice team goal but nowhere near as individually brilliant as Maradona's.

Oh come on, a lot of football nerds (especially seniors like my fahther) are just influencend by the fact, this was the best wc final played.

We may even argue about Brazil 1970 beeing the best team or not, but this is definetly not the best goal!
post #99 of 4057
The Netherlands '74 was the best team, of course

... that ever lost the final.

Teamwork, you have nailed it, 8 outfield players out of 10 are involved in it. This is exacty why this goal is the greatest! Teamwork is the foundation and the essence of the game. You can have the best players in the world at every attacking position. Pelé, Tostao, Carlos Alberto, Everaldo, Rivelino, Gerson, Jairzinho, Clodoaldo, without teamwork they would have never become the greatest team ever. One which will stay in memories for decades if not centuries! Remember the failure of Brazil in 2006, who had Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Adriano and Kaka amongst others, nominally one of the most impressive national squad ever assembled? Lack of team spirit. I could speak for hours about how easy it does seem for them to play like this in a WC final. For instance, Clodoaldo is dribbling 4 italians like he is at some training session, but what makes this goal a piece of art is definitely Pelé pass.

Carlo Alberto speaking of the goal.
