Whack! Splat! Boom! Nick Moore revels in the finest strikes of USA 94.
The unpronounceable Spanish midfielder had tongues twisting across the globe thanks to this deeply cheeky effort.
Out on the right wing and with a wealth of crossing options at his disposal, Goikoetxea instead opts to swerve in an incredible cross-come-shot that ends up nestling in the far left-hand corner of the German net. It was a genuine "Did he mean that?" moment – but he claims he did, and for that, we can only salute the man who wisely chose to shorten his surname to ‘Goiko’.
The Greeks witnessed some superb goals in the summer of 1994 – it was just a shame that they weren’t the ones scoring them. Nigeria’s gifted No.7 added to their woes here: picking up the ball from just outside the area, he guides a pinpoint chip over Adonis Minou. As if he hadn’t done enough to embarrass them, barmy Finidi then celebrates by crawling on all fours like a delighted puppy.
(Note: goal starts at about 3m50s)
