3. Grosso - Ita v. Ger
4. Cole - Eng v. Swe
5. Lahm - Ger v. Crc

haha, how unsurprising that you left off Tomas Rosicky's effort against the USA.
there's a goal of the tournament video on bbc site, which has some of the above mentioned, plus Rosicky's and Kone's wonder goal against Netherlands.

my favourites:
7)Villa (Spain v France)
6) Cole - England Sweden
5) Frings-Ger v Costa Rica
4) Kone-Netherlands v CIV
3) Rosicky-Cze v USA
2) Cambiasso-Arg v S and M
1) Rodriguez Arg v Mexico

I also left off Dempsey against Ghana. There have been some absolute golazos this tournament--I completely forgot about Kone! Top five fer sure.

I don't really understand the fuss over Cole's goal. It was one of those smack-it-and-see shots that we can all pull off once in a while. Not a patch skill-wise on, for example, Kaka's curler against Croatia.

Grosso's wins it for me, though, for the unanticipated perceptiveness and incisiveness of Pirlo's pass, for the instinctiveness of Grosso's shot and for the occasion - a goal as beautiful as that to win a game as brilliant as that was just the bollocks.

That's difficult. There have been a deluge of brilliant goals in the tournament. Not bad for the worst tournament ev.....zzzzzzzzzzz. Quality, not quantity. Dickheads.

Best individual (as in "TWAT! Did you see that?", etc. etc.)

1) Rodriguez - Arg v Mex
2) Cole - Eng v Swe (who, according to one person I no longer speak football to, "shinned it")
3) Kaka - Bra v Cro
4) Frings - Ger v Crc
5) Grosso - Ita v Ger

Best team (As in "Brolin...Dahlin...Brolin...Dahlin...BrolIIIIIINNNNN!!!!!")

1) Cambiasso - Arg v S&M
2) Zinho - Mex v Iran
3) Ze Roberto - Bra v Gha (Cambiasso's Mini-Me goal)
4) Del Piero - Ita v Ger (most of the credit goes to Del Piero's 50-yard run after starting the move)
5) Torres - Spa v Ukr
6) Larsson - Swe v Eng (although this team is the England defence)

Kaka's goal was nice too. As was Frings'. And the Torres one that Cesc set up.

For a tournament being decried as crap, there's been a hell of a lot of great goals scored, hasn't there?

edit: I see we are of a like mind here, Mr.K. I'd have classified Grosso's goal as a 'team' one though - Pirlo's glorious reverse pass was just as good as the finish.

"I don't really understand the fuss over Cole's goal. It was one of those smack-it-and-see shots that we can all pull off once in a while."

Disagree. You can see by the way he looked towards the far post before he chested the ball that he was thinking of it, and the connection with the ball was perfect to get the outside swerve on it. To say it was a hoof and hope is really not appreciating the quality of that goal.

If there's an opportunity to stop praise for joe Cole I'd take it, but it's impossible to for that goal.

"Grosso's wins it for me, though, for the unanticipated perceptiveness and incisiveness of Pirlo's pass, for the instinctiveness of Grosso's shot and for the occasion - a goal as beautiful as that to win a game as brilliant as that was just the bollocks."

That, and the fact he was about 120 degrees away from facing the goal when he hit it first time. I mean, that takes more skill than you can imagine.

blameless - see my above extra thing on Grosso's goal, which makes it, for me, an individual.

And I'm probably doing it an injustice at 5 on that list. 2 to 5 are very, very difficult to rank.

Oh, undoubtedly. It's just I can picture, say, Shefki Kuqi doing it on a good day.

nice to hear Motson and Pearce's commentary on the goals transmitted live by ITV. although Cambiasso's effort is ruined by McCarthy's verbal fart at the end.
