With the World Cup drawing to a close, fans will be looking for ways to remember one of the best tournaments in history and I have come come up with an unbiased souvenir for all the football fans around the world by presenting you all the top 5 moments of the past one month.
Top Moments of World Cup:
Van Persie’s flying header against Spain:
Almost every time an attacker dives, it is to authenticate his penalty claim but the Manchester united striker had another reason that made him an overnight hero.The dutch superstar perfectly headed the cross from the left wing back, Daley Blind as Iker Casillas stood motionless watching the ball gracefully sail towards the goal. It was dream start for his team in the world cup campaign as they dismantled the defending champions by a margin of four goals. This humiliating 5-1 defeat was the beginning of the ‘end of a golden era’ as la roja went lose against Chile marking their world world cup exit.
This stunning goal has reserved him a place in the pages of history . No wonder he is the ‘Flying Dutchman’.
A scoreline that will remain in the shades of history forever:
No words in any language are enough to express how ignominious Brazil’s performance was in their semi final clash against Germany. Brazil’s ineptitude shone to its best as they stood defenseless against the ruthless German onslaught. By far 7-1 is the most one sided scoreline in the semi final stage of the whole world cup history. The absence of their prominent players, Neymar and Silva were considered to be the prime reason for their humiliating defeat .
Mario gets it !
The 22 year old Bavarian striker is the new hero of the Dutchland as his goal claimed his country the first ever World Cup trophy in the South American soil. The super sub scored scored a stunning goal at the 113th minute of the finals of the World Cup resonating the number 13 curse with misery of the Argentines. The young lad fired just when it mattered the most in a game which witnessed a goalless stalemate for 112 minutes.
