    "Some World Cup goals are definitely more memorable than others. For me, the Dennis Bergkamp goal is incredibly memorable despite it not being a goal for the title. The long pass to make it happen, the resettling of the ball around the defender and the actual goal, are all things of beauty and it was incredibly exciting at the time."

    "This end to end sequence was pretty epic. both teams end up traveling the length of the field in high pace fashion. There is a defense and then a counter, and then a defense, rebound and score. It might not be the most amazing goal ever, but it has to rank up there in the top 10 in world cup excitement."
