Top 10: Goals of Germany 2006

8. Tomas Rosicky, Czech Republic vs USA

Pavel Nedved tries to locate human telegraph mast Jan Koller in the USA box, but the American defence hump the ball clear. 

Alas, it falls to Rosicky, who shows a wonderful touch to stop the ball dead before sizzling it between two defenders to reach a tiny gap in Kasey Keller’s goalmouth. Certainly an appetite-whetter for Arsenal fans, as the little magician had just inked a move to north London.
