Hi guys, with the recent high scoring games in the European Championships, what are the best games in your opinion?
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.knackroller said:Hi guys, with the recent high scoring games in the European Championships, what are the best games in your opinion?
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.dynamicv said: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
Hull 7 - 1 Crewe was a far better game and Crewe had their first team goalkeeper throughout the game.Jaffa Cake said: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.
Anyone that watched that games knows that isn't true®îçhå®? said: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.
