Greatest Goals: Rivals to Zlatan Ibrahimovic

In no particular order, we present our selection of greatest goals from the archive: Sir Geoffrey Hurst is the first (and only!) player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup Final. Those famous three goals came in 1966 when England battled West Germany for the heavily-sort-for title of World Cup Champion. Sir Bobby Charlton scored 49 goals for England during his amazing career in football. One of his best, though, is undoubtedly the one he made in 1966 – the World Cup year – when he played against Mexico. Then there’s the cracking goal in the Cardiff v Barnsley match from 1957. The late Helmut Rahn of Germany scored the winning goal in the 1954 World Cup final. He was playing for West Germany against Hungary. The year before, it was the Hungary team which was scoring with exceptional skill. Pele’s World Cup winning goal is documented in an episode of A Day That Shook The World. Think we’ve missed some?
