    Hi guys, with the recent high scoring games in the European Championships, what are the best games in your opinion?

    High scoring games are all well and good now and again, but they don't automatically mean an entertaining game. I didn't see the Germany match myself (I was watching the England game) but I can imagine they just dominated San Marino, who in turn offered no resistance – you might as well just watch a training ground match. On the other hand, I've seen some very entertaining matches that have ended up either as goalless draws or 1-0 wins – two evenly matched teams battling to get the better of one another and all that.

    That said, watching Hull trounce Tranmere Rovers 6-1 a couple of years ago was entertaining. It's only fair to point out though that Tranmere had two goalkeepers taken off injured and had to spend most of the game with an outfield player in goal, but even so seeing the faces of the Tranmere fans as goal after goal went in was a delight. :D

    I don't know much about the high scoring games, but if you are willing to consider women's soccer/football, you will find a lot of blowouts by the major powers. Now, the best games are the competitive matches - be it a well played 1-0/2-1 or high scoring 7-5 affair.

    Best game I ever saw live was Millwall vs. Stockport, which finished up 4-3 to County after an Alun Armstrong goal in the 93rd minute. It was real end-to-end stuff right the way through the match.

    Best game on TV had to be England vs. Holland in Euro '96, funnily enough the same year as the match above. If only England could play like that every game :(

    If we're talking England then I'd also say our 5-1 drubbing of Germany in 2001. Liverpool's recent Champions League triumph of a couple of years ago also made for great TV - at least, the second-half onwards did.

    High scoring blowouts are usually dull in any sport unless you're a particular fan of the winner or loathe the loser.

    Most entertaining soccer game I recall seeing lately was probably the Germany v Italy World Cup semi-final

    Hull 7 - 1 Crewe was a far better game and Crewe had their first team goalkeeper throughout the game.

    The top three games in my mind are:

    1. England 5 - 1 Germany, 2001
    2. Liverpool 3 - 3 AC Milan (Liverpool Win On Penalties), UEFA Champs. League Final 2005
    3. Liverpool 7 - 1 Birmingham City, FA Cup, 2005

    Those were top games...

    Best game, was Wycombe versus Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final. Wycombe did not deserve to loose as it was so close and should have been a draw.

    The Game in istanbul is probably the best game I've ever seen, in any competition.

    Actually, Liverpool have a good case for best games in every competition.

    FA Cup Final - 3-3 win on pens with a last minute wonder strike.
    European Cup - 3-3 win on pens, amazing comeback, amazing save, dudek doing "the grobbelaar"
    Premier League - newcastle 4-3

    But from a neutral point of view, the European cup final was just about as good as it gets. I would challenge anyone to actually name a more exciting game.

    Can't have been that good, seeing as it was in 2006 and it was 7-0 ;)

    But i do support Wycombe so... it was a good run though. I believe the highest scoreline was 36-0 aswell.
