Unofficial Finals

Recommended Posts

Was just reminded of the Brazil v France quarter-final at Mexico 86, which seemed to be universally considered the game of the tournament between arguably the two best teams.

Generally the actual finals turn out to be massive disappointments, so which matches do you remember that deserve to be considered the unofficial final?

Euro 2004 - cant mind who they were up against but the Czech Republic had some belting games iirc, might have a look at the run. edit: think they had Nedved in his prime, Milan Baros having the tournament of his life which got him a move to Liverpool I think, etc.

further edit; that was it! Netherlands 2 Czech Republic 3, vaguely mind watching it and being blown away. 3 wins from 3 in a group including the Netherlands, Germany and Latvia only to get Greece'd later on.
