10 of the best from Italia 90 - as featured in the March 2010 issue of FourFourTwo
Receiving the ball on the left wing, Baggio exchanges a one-two with Giannini before bombing goalward. He hurdles a leg-breaking lunge before turning the final defender inside out and thumping the ball home.
A goal from nothing crafted by Maradona’s genius. Diego evades two desperate tackles and powers towards the area, before coolly releasing the unmarked Caniggia, who rounds Taffarel and sends the Brazilians home.
Klinsmann, in a seemingly unthreatening position, glances an incredible header from Brehme’s cross, applying the requisite amount of ‘the eyebrows’ to angle the ball perfectly betwixt defender, keeper and post.
Gazza lofts a deft sand wedge into the only available metre of space behind the Belgium defence. Platt calmly waits for the ball to loop over his right shoulder, rotates 180 degrees and blasts the ball home.
While not possessing the subtlety of Baggio, Matthaus’ method – an all-out, explosive sprint – was just as terrifying. He leaves a Yugoslav defender for dead before smashing a piledriver into Tomislav Ivkovic’s net.
A masterclass of movement, skill and sexy dancing.
The forward scuttles towards the goal, shimmies left like a Strictly Come Dancing starlet to send the keeper to ground and side-foots home.
The 38-year-old bombs into the Romania box to seize upon
a hopeful back-header. He races past
a defender like a man half his age, and from a narrow angle, launches the ball past the goalkeeper at his near post.
A great team goal that introduced the unknown Sicilian to the globe. Vialli beats his man to loft in a delicious cross. ‘Toto’ finds
a gap and powers a header home, going ballistic and instantly becoming
a national hero.
The Czechs made America wear a dress and cry in this fixture, thrashing them 5-1, but the USA’s consolation was the pick of the bunch. It was America’s first World Cup finals goal for 40 years.
The Yugolavs took UAE apart and the superb passing of Susic was at the heart of everything they did. Susic plants a hard header in the back of the net. Aged 35, he was only three years younger than Roger Milla.
