      Already mentioned that World Cup in one of the other threads.

      Bergkamp's winner against Argentina is still my favourite goal from that competition.

      1998 really had some great matches, I loved it too (not so much the ending!).

      This Netherlands vs Argentina, England vs Argentina was fun (that Michael Owen goal!), Brazil vs Denmark was insane (and how good was Rivaldo), Brazil vs Netherlands was an amazing semifinal. Thuram scoring two goals in the semis vs Croatia was also heartbreaking, I remember cheering for Davor Suker at the time.

      Overrated goal. Argentina should have dealt with that long ball, instead Bergkamp just had to score a relatively easy goal.

      What????!!!!!

      You trying to compare that fat, fag smoking, cockney spiv's goal with the one the Iceman scored?

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsZkCFoqSBs

      Touch, technique and what a finish. A truly world class goal from a world class player. The end.

      Anyone who has played football at any level and any position should know Bergkamp's goal was something special and more difficult to execute than Cole's goal.

      I think Rib is the only person I have ever seen to say Bergkamp's goal is overrated and Cole scored better!!

      You never tire of that goal. Even the long arching ball from De Boer is a thing of beauty. One of my favourite ever players was Bergkamp. Not content with scoring the greatest World Cup goal ever, he also is the beholder of the greatest goal in the Premier League.

      Now - let's never compare Cole to Bergkamp again!

      This in a nutshell,I wouldn't even have the f**king cheek to mention joe cole in the same sentence as  bergkamp the only comparison I can think off is one was a donkey & the other was a Thoroughbred

      Its all spiralling down to a Brexit Final. Brussell's vs London. The young fresh break from the past England team versus the long term European styled project Belgian side. It truly has wider ramifications if it comes to pass. The success of Brexit may depend on the outcome. Of course I could be reading too much into it : )

      3/4 chance that at least 1 of our guys will be returning with a World Cup winners medal.

      Is it weird that I'm kinda really hoping it's our illustrious #6? :D

      I think you might be a bit ;-), but the current dynamics of Brexit in the UK are fascinating, it's easier going to be a super soft Brexit now or Hard Brexit WTO, my betting is on the latter.

      I'd actually be fairly happy with any of the remaining countries winning it but I do kind of have a soft spot for England this time around especially in the middle of the Brexit storm domestically and hostility from the EU, it would be a real shot in the arm for the country.

      Really tight call tonight with a very evenly matched pair and may just come down to the fitness of Mbappe.

      There again with Kante in the side you know Hazard won’t have the freedom to run through the midfield like he did against Brazil.

      Think it'll come down to how Belgium link up on the night.
      Sometimes Hazard and De Bruyne look more likely to box the head off each other,
      but if they link up well with Lukaku then they'll be unstoppable in attack.

      Like you said, only variable then is whether Mbappe takes this WC to cement his place as the next superstar.
      (Which media will be all over given Ronaldo and Messi are out)

      Is Modric the worlds best midfielder? Jenas said he was but I thought there are many good midfielders from other countries as well.
      I thought De Bruyne myself.
