Er, no. One hand-ball, one own-goal & Lineker managed to miss from the goalline. One of the best remembered, possibly, but not the best.
Ironically the best game I can recall was from '86 tho. 2nd round, Belgium beat the Soviet Union 4-3 AET. It was a v strong Soviet team who had won their group ahead of France & Belgium had just squeaked thru as one of the best 3rd placed teams. Has everything but decent defending!
86 probably had the best final I can recall too, but that's not saying much TBF.
Best game with England? Hmm. We've not had too many classics I can recall. 2-2 v yer Argentines in '98 was notable for our tremendous rearguard action & Sol's (incorrectly) disallowed goal. I can't go past Beck's duff pen that dicked them last time round or Platty's volley in the last min of ET in '90 v the sprouts tho. Bugger objectivity!
