Wonder Goal!

This is why we love the game, why we keep watching, even though it's hard to stomach Jared Borgetti's whining and play-acting, despite the refs consistently getting offside calls wrong, in spite of Marcelo Balboa's continued employment as a commentator. It's the spontaneous thing that occurs after you've been awaiting the logical; just when you think Lionel Messi will split the defense and set Carlos Tevez up for an easy finish, or when you expect Zinha to put a cross onto Borgetti's head, something inexplicable happens. We here on 116th street will be talking about this one for a very long time.

That was spectacular. But I think that Cambiasso's goal in the 6-0 dismantling of Serbia & Montenegro was even better. There have been some real stunners in this World Cup - Frings and Lahm in Germany's first match against Costa Rica, Joe Cole's strike against Sweden, Kaka's goal against Croatia.
