    Maxi's was indeed the greatest strike and probably goal of the tournament. Joe Cole's was damn impressive as was Gerrard's. The very first goal of the tournament from Lahm should be up there but it looked a bit more of a fluke than the other ones.

    There have been some insane team goal's as mentioned previously. Spain's fourth against Ukraine by Torres and the second Argentine goal against Serbia are both better than Cole's strike IMO.

    That's still more important business than Maxi's goal !!

    Maxi Rodriguez's goal was absolutely brilliant , IMO not dissimilar to the famous Ronaldinho goal that found the net beating David Seaman, in terms of quality !!

    Cobblers. Maxi meant his. The buck-toothed client's fluke was nothing more than an ale-house punt.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Regardless if Ronaldinho meant it, the two goals are still a world apart in terms of quality.

    Proper centre-half's hair-cut too:

    Seeing the Phillppe Senderos fan club at Highbury is something I forget for a long time.

    Especially more so that he was on the bench that day and he stayed there the whole match.

    Or even for sheer brilliance?

    That was a pretty good game, and I got up in time and was getting ready to go on a training ride, but ended up sitting there watching the rest of the match as I felt I couldn't miss anything.

    I know I said I wanted Italy to win, but having watched Argentina play thus far, and if I were a betting man I would be putting my cash on them to win the WC. They really do look good.

    I take your point about tedium.

    Rooney is totally isolated up front and England appear to view the use of a 'diamond' midfield as an invitation to completely bypass any creativity there is in the side by continually punting hopeful seventy yard passes upfield at the same time as Rooney is actualy coming back into midfield to try to get a touch of the ball.

    Depressing first half - hence I'm back from the pub..

    Has to be said - I would not pay Lampard in washers as far as his 'finishing' is concerned.

    England have been quite excellent in the second half so far.

    Sounds like a 'put the mockers on it' statement.

    Better second half there from England. Time for bed, work in... 7 hours.
