My first WC memory: Roger Milla's goal celebrations in Italy 1990

My best WC memory: Denmark beating Nigeria 4-1 and losing narrowly to Brazil 3-2 in France with both Laudrup brothers playing

My worst WC memory: Holland in 2010. Horrible football and thuggish behaviour

EDIT: Roger Milla... not Luis, of course.

My best memory:- Italy-Germany game in 06, Bergkamp & Owen goals in 98, Suarez handball for the LOLZ! and Iniesta's winner.

Who is the guy in your avatar. He has a lot to live up to following Zubi......:pep:


Remember seeing World Cup 1998 games in USA, at pretty early hours.

Holland-Brazil Semifinals, Ronaldo scored just as the 2nd half started and the idiots from the American television didn't finish the commercials and they stopped them to show Ronaldo celebrating.

I don't have many bad memories, but I remember one of the happiest moments was seeing USA kicking Portugal's ass in 2002 opening group match and leading 3-0, totally surprising, doubled by the victory over Mexico.

Korea-Italy in 2002 was another good memory, seeing they're boring butts getting brutalized by the Asians, remember they were pretty aggressive that day on them, and all finished with that brilliant Golden Goal.

Funny moments: Remember Owen as a future big start ( lol, fail :lol: ) or how the English commentators were saying a few minutes before the end of Romania-England that "if something happens, for sure it would be England to win it".

A red card just few seconds after he was sent in in 1994 in Detroit, with that weird intellectual mustache.
The people here called the Pontiac Silverdome, the Silver Doom :lol:.


Another funny moment was Jeff Agoos's face after the 2-3 own goal against Portugal, it's good they resisted till the end.

Bad memories are from 2006, with two mediocre teams playing the final, The Netherlands proved that in the 2008 Group Stages.
Australia should have made it to the Semifinals in 2006, Brazil was baaad, Ronaldinho was awful and despite everybody seeing them capable of eating everything they failed. Zidane overrated, France was helped to win the Round 2 game against Spain with that foul that didn't exist and made it 1-2 at the end.
