FIFA Favourite World Cup Goal

The Super Eagles made it through the Group D stage which had Argentina and Bulgaria. Amokachi beat two defenders then unleashed a 25-yard shot to the right corner.

That goal is in competition with Michael Owen’s brilliant solo goal against Argentina at the 1998 World Cup after he collected a pass from David Beckham in the centre-circle.

Other nominees for the FIFA Favourite World Cup Goal include Philipp Lahm, Manuel Negrete, Dennis Bergkamp, Gheorghe Hagi, Joe Cole, James Rodríguez, Lothar Matthäus and Robin van Persie.
