David Beckham - Famous Goal Perhaps the most spectacular clutch free kick in the history of international soccer: England is down a goal to Greece in their final European qualifying group match for the 2002 World Cup. Needing at least a draw to secure a place in the World Cup finals, things look bleak for England as the seconds tick down. England is awarded an iffy free kick. David Beckham steps forward to take it...

Bobby Moore on WML A clip that will amuse Brits: Bobby Moore, one of the great English soccer stars ever, is a mere regular contestant on this 1963 episode of What's My Line. Known for his gentlemanly ways and stellar defensive play, Moore would represent his country in 108 international matches (and play every minute!) and lead England to the 1966 World Cup championship. Saldy he died far too young of colon cancer at age 51 in 1993.

Chile vs Nobody - 1974 WC Qualifier In one of the strangest sporting scenes ever, on November 21, 1973 the Chilean soccer team took to the field at the National Stadium in Santiago in a crucial qualifying match for the 1974 World Cup tournament against no opposition! Their opponents were supposed to be the Soviet Union. Chile and the USSR were vying for the final berth for the 1974 World Cup tournament in West Germany. In the first game of a two-game playoff, the teams had played to a hard-fought 0-0 draw two months earlier in Moscow. However, a right-wing revolution toppled the elected Chilean government shortly thereafter. Hundreds of undesirable political leftists were executed at Santiago's National Stadium just two weeks before the scheduled return match. The horrified Soviets wanted the match to be played at a neutral site--or at the very least switched to a different venue within Chile. FIFA refused to move the game to another stadium, so the Soviets refused to play. At the appointed time, as this clip shows, the Chileans kicked off, made a few passes, and scored a goal into an unguarded net. Since there was no opposing team to take the subsequent kickoff, the referee forfeited the game to the Chileans. Chile was eliminated in the group stage of the 1974 World Cup.

Bradford City Grandstand Fire - 1985 Here is video of a terrible sports calamity: On May 11, 1985, English soccer club Bradford City were celebrating their promotion from the third division to the second division, having mathematically clinched the championship with a week to spare. The final game of the 1984-85 season at Valley Parade Stadium was against Lincoln City. More than 11,000 spectators were on hand--about twice the home average that season--to witness the festive pregame ceremonies featuring the championship trophy presentation. Yorkshire Television, with John Helm providing the commentary, was present to record the match for a tape-delayed broadcast the following day. Everyone was in a jovial mood until about 40 minutes after the match began. A fire broke out underneath Section G of the wooden grandstand--an antiquated structure that had not been modified since 1911 and was slated for demolition at the end of the season. The blaze likely started from a discarded match or cigarette that fell through the grandstand's floor boards. Beneath the grandstand was an enormous amount of flammable material; the team used the area for storage of old programs, among other things. Because of windy conditions, within four minutes a huge fire had engulfed the grandstand. There were no extinguishers nearby and no easy way to exit the grandstand in the event of an emergency. Initially it appeared that everyone was able to escape the danger by jumping onto the pitch, but 56 people died and 265 others were injured. Most of the fatalities were fans under 20 years old or over 70. One victim was Sam Firth, the club's 86-year-old former chairman. Many fans perished near locked gates or in the washrooms under the stands. Wooden grandstands were outlawed at stadiums in the UK following the tragedy. There were many heroic actions during the fire. Some 50 fans later received commendations for their rescue efforts.

Serbia-Albania Soccer Riot For the 2016 European championship, bitter enemies Serbia and Albania happened to be drawn by lottery into the same qualifying pool. Their first meeting in 47 years in Belgrade in October 2014 was quite memorable. Keith Olbermann explains how things got just a little bit out of hand. (Skip ahead to the 2:22 mark of this video.)

Battle of Santiago - 1962 World Cup One of the dirtiest sports events ever to take place was a 1962 World Cup match between Chile and Italy. This BBC clip shows how out-of-control the situation became. On May 22, 1960 Chile was rocked with a devastating earthquake that measured 9.5 on the Richter scale. At the same time the earthquake struck, Chile had been lobbying FIFA to host the 1962 World Cup. Despite the enormous tragedy--and perhaps because of it--FIFA was persuaded by an emotional appeal by the Chilean organizers and won the right to host the tournament. Several Italian journalists criticized Chile's ability to host such an important event. They went too far by insulting everything to do with the South American country, including the virtue of its women. All Italians became hated in Chile. The journalists were forced to flee the country. An Argentinian reporter, mistaken for an Italian, was severely beaten by a mob. Of course Italy and Chile were drawn into the same group so they had to play one another in Santiago on June 2. In presenting recorded match highlights for the UK, BBC reporter David Coleman minces no words about the brutal spectacle that occurred that day.

Andrew Shaw Disallowed Headbutt Goal From Game #2 of the 2015 NHL Western Conference finals, Andrew Shaw of the Chicago Blackhawks 'scores' an overtime goal against the Anaheim Ducks with a creative soccer-style header. It was a play that few fans had ever seen before--and many wondered if it was a legal way to score a goal. It's not. By rule a goal cannot be scored if the puck is deliberately directed into the net with anything other than a player's stick. The goal was properly disallowed. However, many fans think the rules ought to be amended to allow such a play to count as a legitimate goal. Chicago won the game with a goal that actually counted in the third overtime period. This clip is from Hockey Night in Canada's coverage of the game.

Rene Higuita Scorpion Kick In the early 1990s Colombia's national soccer team featured a flamboyant goalkeeper named Rene Higuita. He was rightly nicknamed El Loco (The Madman) for his daring, foolhardy style of play. This short clip is a great example: During a friendly match versus England at Wembley Stadium in 1995, the 29-year-old Higuita displayed his 'scorpion kick' save to the world--and to a disbelieving British TV announcer.

George Best 1971 Hat-Trick The average American sports fan has probably never heard of George Best, but in the early 1970s, he was probably the best soccer player in the world. A resident of Northern Ireland, Best caught the attention of a scout for Manchester United at age 15 who reported that he had found a 'genius.' Best had incredible balance and could strike beautiful, creative, and powerful shots with both feet. In this clip from September 18, 1971 Best scores three goals for Manchester United versus West Ham United. (The third one is especially spectacular!) Unfortunately Best fell into a hedonistic lifestyle. He once joked that he had spent most of his fortune on booze, women and fast cars--and had squandered the rest! Best became an alcoholic and died way too young at age 59 in 2005.
