Liverpool’s Champions League Return in 2005
Liverpool won among the best finals played in Champions League and subsequently in the history of football. After A/C Milan took 45 minutes to dismantle their challengers and apparently get hold of the prize, Liverpool took 6 minutes to send out neutrals, supporting fans and opposing fans into different emotions. After the goal in the 60th minute, Liverpool protected exceptionally and still invoked a couple of possibilities to win the game. In the end, it boiled down to the nervy affair of fines. AC Milan missed out on 3 fines– most especially Jerzy Dudek’s conserve of Andriy Schevchenko charge– and Liverpool missed out on just one and history was composed.
Greece Wins Euro 2004
Greece won Euro 2004 in stunning and extremely unexpected fashion. This group played the ugliest and most protective football at the time and to think about them as competition winner was absurd. Interestingly enough, they ended the competition and began with a win over Portugal, a group who was amongst the favorites to win, particularly when they were the hosts of the match. During the tournament, Greece beat Portugal (two times), France and the Czech Republic.
Senegal Beats France and Has Strong Run in the 2002 World Cup
In the opening game of the 2002 World Cup, Senegal– a group making its first look at this phase– beat France– the ruling World and European champions. Senegal displayed a number of players plying their trade across France. However, France had the huge stars. They did not stop there. They attained 2 more game ties and the group moved ahead and went on to quarterfinals prior losing to Turkey in extra-time. They beat a skilled Swedish side to reach the game against Turkey. Senegal’s run triggered some huge steps for players like El-Hadj Diouf.
Cantona Kung-Fu Kick
It would be among the most shameful moments on the football ground when Eric Cantona jumped into the crowd at Crystal Palace and carried out a kung fu kick to their fans that had actually been goading him as he strolled to the tunnel after receiving the red card. For his actions, he was fined £20,000, along with 120 hours of neighborhood service fine and was prohibited from playing squad for the rest of the league.
Zinedine Zidane header exit
During the 2006 world cup in a match between France and Italy, in extra-time, and with the score level at 1-1, Zidane produced a header of a really different kind. Responding to provocation and t-shirt pulling from the Italian protector, Zidane powerfully pushed his head into Materazzi’s chest, sending out the protector crashing to the ground. This is sure shot among the most shocking moments on the football ground. After this game, Zidane announced his retirement from International football.
David Busst Injury
Probably the most terrible injury the English Premier League has seen, Busst was playing for Coventry City against Manchester United in 1996 when he hit United’s player Denis Irwin and Brian McClair, leading to substantial fractures to both the players. The horrible scene caused Manchester United keeper Peter Schmeichel vomit on the ground.
Football is an interesting and amazing game to watch and enjoy, however, as the ever game has few of the shocking moments. Above mentioned were few of the moments that made football a shameful game.
