The Netherlands meet Argentina in the quarter-finals of the World Cup on Friday in a game that has already seen one of the biggest goals of the tournament.
At the 1998 World Cup, a sensational Dennis Bergkamp finish settled a round of 16 encounter between the two nations.
But where does he rank among the all-time greatest World Cup goals in the competition?
Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer and Micah Richards discussed the topic on the Match of the Day: Top 10 podcast.

Saeed Al Owairan: Saudi Arabia v Belgium (1994) (Richards: 9th, Shearer: 10th)
Saudi Arabia had qualified for the World Cup for the first time – and Saeed Al-Owairan wrote his name in World Cup folklore.
Deep in his own half, the striker clung to an error from Enzo Scifo. Then he started running. And run. And run. And even if he almost lost control of the ball in the opposing penalty area, he managed to crush Belgian goalkeeper Michel Preud’homme.
Shearer: It was a very special goal.
Lineker: It was from his own half – he beat about five players and it was a great finish.
Josimar: Brazil v Northern Ireland (1986) (Richards: 10th, Shearer: 7th)
The Northern Ireland defense appeared to be in good defensive shape as Brazil looked to open an opening.
But Josimar decided to take matters into his own hands, hitting a long-range drive that sailed over the head of legendary Pat Jennings into the top corner of the net.
Nelinho: Brazil v Italy (1978) (Richards: 8th, Shearer: 9th)
Was it a cross or did he want to shoot?
Anyway, Brazilian Nelinho’s goal from an unlikely angle with the outside of the foot had so much curvature that even the great Dino Zoff in the Italian goal couldn’t help it.
Shearer: It was an incredible strike.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst: Netherlands v Uruguay (2010) (Richards: 4th, Shearer: 8th)
He looked far too far to strike.
But when Dutch captain Giovanni van Bronckhorst won the ball down the left flank against Uruguay, he had only one thing in mind. The left-back took a touch to set himself up before firing a thunderous shot through the goal and into the far corner.
Richard: The way he ran… it felt like it wasn’t real.
Shearer: What a success.
Lineker: Absolute smoker!
Michael Owen: England v Argentina (1998) (Richards: 5th, Shearer: 5th)
A star Is Born.
Liverpool teenager Michael Owen announced himself to the international scene with a brilliant solo effort, collecting David Beckham’s pass before blasting past two Argentinian defenders and delivering a cool finish into the top corner.
Shearer: What a goal from Michael Owen. It was the way he ducked and walked past someone and then had the ability to finish them off.
Dennis Bergkamp: Netherlands v Argentina (1998) (Richards: 6th, Shearer: 3rd)
“Dennis Bergkamp, Dennis Bergkamp! DENNIS BERGKAMP!!” Just watch the Dutch version of the comments for this lens, which has racked up almost 8 million views on YouTube.
The Netherlands’ quarter-final draw against Argentina was heading into extra time but the Arsenal man had other ideas, gloriously controlling Frank de Boer’s raking pass, spinning inside from Roberto Ayala and clipping an outside foot finish into the net.
Carlos Alberto: Brazil v Italy (1970) (Richards: 7th, Shearer: 1st)
“That goal is art” is how the best commentary on YouTube describes Carlos Alberto’s goal against Italy in the 1970 final.
There didn’t seem to be a problem when the Brazilians passed the ball in their own half before the move moved forward and Pele fired in Alberto to punch in a low finish in the bottom corner.
Benjamin Pavard: France v Argentina (2018) (Richards: 2nd, Shearer: 6th)
“Satisfactory” is probably the best way to describe this goal. Find the GIF version of this and watch the reverse angle loop.
France defender Benjamin Pavard saw the ball fall to him on the edge of the box before leaning back and hitting the cleanest of shots with the outside of his boot into the top corner. He was voted Goal of the Tournament for the 2018 World Cup.
Lineker: Pavard’s finish was exquisite.
James Rodriguez: Colombia v Uruguay (2014) (Richards: 3rd, Shearer: 4th)
This lens’ “all angles” video is the one that puts a smile on your face.
Colombia faced their South American rival, Uruguay. James Rodriguez stunned the crowd with a sensational strike, taking the ball to his chest just outside the D, before spinning and smashing an unstoppable volley into the top corner.
Lineker: It was spectacular.
Shearer: The touch, the technique for throwing it and then making it fly.
Diego Maradona: Argentina v England (1986) (Richards: 1st, Shearer: 2nd)
“You have to say it’s magnificent. He was just pure footballing genius.”
Barry Davies nailed the commentary for Diego Maradona’s unforgettable solo goal against England, passing Peter Reid, cutting through three challenges before passing Peter Shilton and sneaking into the net.
Lineker: When you’re in the field with him, you’re simply in awe.
