A World Cup 2010 Primer: The Best Goals from 2006

Holy sh*t, I’d forgotten about most of these.  Everyone remembers the Argentina goal (technically scored by Esteban Cambiasso, but f*&k that, it has to be referred to as the Argentina goal) where they composed a series of patient pinpoint passes like a god damn symphony , but I’ve gotta say for my money Joe Cole and Maxi Rodriguez are the standouts.

The ill thing about the beginning of this highlight reel is that the first two goals, scored by Ze Germans, were both in the first match of the tournament.  That’s how you knew we were in for a great World Cup ’06.

This piece where Les Murray runs down the most infamous moments in World Cup history is pretty cool, especially for his description of the France ’98 Final:

Ronaldo did take the field, but he and Brazil played like crap and lost 3-0.

Brilliant, Les.
