Top 10: World Cup net-busters

1. Dennis Bergkamp (Holland) vs Argentina‚ France 98

Any goal that makes Barry Davies reach a pitch audible only to dogs deserves a place on this list; the fact that it was an 89th-minute quarter-final winner against the Argies makes it pretty special, too.

The way Bergkamp kills Frank de Boer's 60-odd-yard long ball with his first touch, flicks it back inside his marker with his second, before hitting it with the outside of his foot into the opposite top corner with his third... well, it's almost indescribable. Ask Barry.
