And will never be bettered. 0 Vote up! ‘86 looked good as well although before my time. Strange that they held it in Mexico twice in 16 years… 0 Vote up! 1966 obvs 0 Vote up! 1986 had some cracking goals [a]World Cup Mexico 86 Top 20 Goals BBC - YouTube[/a] 0 Vote up! some fvcking shite nominations on here and no mistake 2002? 1998? fgs the best are 1970 (by repute - haven’t seen it), 1986, 1994, and 2018. 2014 also pretty decent. 0 Vote up! I liked 2006. 0 Vote up! worst: 1998-2010 was a really poor run, with 2010 probably the nadir 0 Vote up! best european championship, on the other hand, was probably 2000, though I liked 2008 as well 0 Vote up! OT: where is the "which big team will get knocked out first" thread. Was it pulled? Can't find it by doing a keyword search 0 Vote up! 0 Vote up! The only really memorable ones for me have been '90, '98 and '06. 0 Vote up! 0 Vote up! "I liked 2006. " No one liked 2006 dux. Cristiano Ronaldo winking at Wayne Rooney. Horrible. Bring back the real Ronaldo. 0 Vote up! 1 Vote up! 0 Vote up! Why is he even allowed to be here? 0 Vote up! 1970 was good. They occasionally rerun the England v Brazil game. We played them off the park but missed all our many chances. 0 Vote up! 0 Vote up! Joe Cole scoring vs Sweden. Ace stuff. 0 Vote up! What OGR said 0 Vote up! What OGR said 0 Vote up! Best childhood memories- 1990 Best as an adult- 2010 (eng performance aside) 0 Vote up! Lol @ 2014 and 2018 both garbage 0 Vote up! Impressive video embedding from 3 ducks. Some kind of black magic. 0 Vote up! FF - Mexico ‘86 was because the intended host country - Columbia? - pulled out 0 Vote up! 2010 was purest w**k. The only good thing about ‘06 was the Italy v Germany semi, which is one of the best international games ever, but it was a diamond swimming in sewage. 2014 and 2018 both brilliant, give over 0 Vote up! ’FF - Mexico ‘86 was because the intended host country - Columbia? - pulled out‘ Ah ok christ, imagine a World Cup in Colombia… 0 Vote up! 1990, or perhaps that is just when my World Cup interest peaked - plus Nessun Dorma 0 Vote up! 1990 was a great event, unfortunately the football was really terrible 0 Vote up! Certainly the worst Final. Argentina behaved abominably. 0 Vote up! yeah probably not best for the actual football but the whole thing has legendary status in my mind and I have probably not been able to watch a tournament since quite so comprehensively. 0 Vote up! Enjoyed 1990 as it's the first I really got into, 1994 as I was in the US for most of it, 1998 for Zidane, 2002 watching the final at Glastonbury, 2018 was a great experience with England rolling. Probably 2002 if I had to pick. Ronaldo assuming his crown. 0 Vote up! 1990 is of some historic importance to the english game, but otherwise it was quite dull, and it’s primary legacy was a slew of unfit for purposes stadia that actively held back the Italian club game in the decades to come. 0 Vote up! ‘Certainly the worst Final. Argentina behaved abominably’ ’94 final was a stinker too but yes I agree. W Germany hardly covered themselves in glory either, some of the play acting was outrageous 0 Vote up! Agreed. Very lucky winners. 0 Vote up! ‘86 was meant to be Colombia but they got hit by loads of earthquakes and could not afford the construction work. It was a mad choice in the first place. But this was a time when the thing was rotating between Europe and South America and it was “their” turn. The US and Canada offered to host instead but Mexico got the best bribes in. 1970 is often rated as the best because the best team won, there was some great football, and there were no match rigging shenanigans like there were in the next three. 1986 was spoilt by the rugby playing drug cheat otherwise that would be up there too. 0 Vote up! 2003 2019 😊 1 Vote up! 86. 0 Vote up! Although 90 started very promisingly 0 Vote up! Cameroon defender, what me gov, I didnt put Canigga into orbit after my two mates had a go too. Not me guv. 0 Vote up! The 2002 England match v Brazil was pretty special. All those great players. Carlos, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo (the real one), David Beckham's mohican. Michael Owen's goal. Seaman with his ponytail and Ronaldinho's freekick (was it a fluke). Quality 0 Vote up! I remember watching that 2002 and it was properly depressing. Playing 10 men in the 2nd half and I don’t think we touched the ball. The bad old days of watching England chasing the ball around all game and giving it away as soon as they got it. i don’t think a single member of that 2002 squad would get in the current team tbh. 0 Vote up! Watching England has rarely been fun in world cups. Even when we won we tended to scrape a win and there always seem to be a multitude of more entertaining teams. Please that has changed, based on matches so far we are the most swashbuckling entertaining team in the tournament. 0 Vote up! i reckon from the 2002 team ferdinand, cole and scholes would b starters vs the current xi. becks and owen would make the bench oh and heskey. wot this current team definitely needs is a heskey 0 Vote up! I have to say in terms of officiating and fouls committed, cards given and general shinnanigins so far this WC has been pretty good - impact of VAR I guess. The only howler I have seen is the penalty not given for the hold on Maguire and no really awful fouls or attempts to cheat. 0 Vote up! Ronaldinho's wasn't a fluke. He was at the peak of his powers round then. 0 Vote up! watching england in games that matter generally just makes me feel sick with nerves it’s always the random games I enjoy most, which is why I’m a group stage guy really - my interest wanes once the knockout phase starts our absence from the 1994 world cup actively made that tournament more enjoyable 0 Vote up! 98 for the win. 1 Vote up! We need a Wang's World Cup of World Cups. 0 Vote up! Laz, in that case how do you enjoy watching your team (Newcastle?) in the domestic league? Do you prefer to watch other league matches not involving them? 0 Vote up! I have fond memories of 1982. The best Brazil team never to win the world cup, France and Poland at their best, Paulo Rossi, and that celebration by Marco Tardelli. 0 Vote up! 2002 was the best for unexpected results and drama /controversy but it wasn't the best quality football and the 2 teams in the final, although pedigree names, had actually both gone in as underdogs. 2018 probably my personal fave of the ones I've watched for a balance of quality football and drama. 2014 was almost all the former without enough of the latter (not enough see saw matches or upsets ) 0 Vote up! It's heating up. 0 Vote up! The gift that keeps on giving 0 Vote up! I guess I called it. 0 Vote up! unless “it” is the freephone number 4 ‘traumatised fascists encounter reality psychotherapy support’, u most deffo did not call “it” 0 Vote up! 2014 was almost all the former without enough of the latter (not enough see saw matches or upsets ) er apart from the most satisfying result of all time 7-1 0 Vote up! 90 - mainly for the Greatest Foul Ever - per Charrington above 0 Vote up!
