Football Highlights

The Guardian's 'Sports Blog' has been collecting some great sporting things from You Tube. Some of the football ones have been excellent. Here's a selection /i want all in one convenient place. I want a good Maradona one too.

Oh, and apologies for the music. Well sort of. It's hardly my fault. But the music isn't what I would have chosen. Let's leave it at that.

George Best
The Guardian’s take will do here: Pele good, Maradona better, George Best

Mark Hughes
Many happy, happy memories here and still cheering the great goal against Barcelona in the 91 Cup Winners’ Cup final…

By the way, does anyone know of a link to Hughes’ spectacular volley against Spain in 1985 (apparently) or sometime around the mid-80s?

Hristo Stoichkov
This starts ok but gets better and better.

Ronaldo
Remember just how good Ronaldo was at Barcelona, before the weight increase and all that?

Romario
And here is Romario, not only one of THE finest goal scorers of all time but one of THE finest players of all time.

UPDATE:
Our American friend JB Hood was deeply upset by the lack of US highlights. He's mentioned a couple in the comments to which I'd add Freddie Adu. But as I was picking the highlights from the Guardian 'Sports Blog' I can happily announce that there is now a US addition: a classic Roy Wegerle goal:

JC,

Didn't know whether to post here or in the previous as both posts were worthy. Good work on languages as well. FEel free to only post every so often if your posts are this good.

You somehow managed to neglect USA [soccer] highlights...I recommend Eric Wynalda and especially Brian McBride, search for him (add tribute) and you'll find them. His best goal in my recollection was an absolute killer in the FA Cup a year or two ago, off the chest from a deep pass on the run at the corner of the box, then one time hit and in.

Thx for the great videos. I found a (german) version of his best 20 goals - great striker/player romario!

Thanks for that Euro. Very nice.

Thanks too JB. Ah, it was not my fault as I was getting stuff off the Guardian site (though I did type in Freddie Adu on You Tube -not bad at all...any opinons on that). And I thought I was just objectively picking out the key highlights where it just so happened to include the odd Man United player. BUT things changed as of yesterday when one Roy Wegerle was mentioned on the website. So as a special Easter treat here is his wonder goal for QPR from the mid-1990s:

Let me just say that today's ManU game (done while cleaning up my biblio) was simply amazing. Clinical in every way.
