    Picking up from the last post, here's a historic moment where Okocha was part of.

    Anyhow, here's the context.

    We're in the 2000-01 season and this is the second CL group phase. The other two teams in the group are Milan and Galatasaray. This is the 5th game out of six. Prior to the games, the standings were as follow, with the last games being Milan vs Deportivo and PSG vs Galatasaray.

    1. Deportivo 7 pts
    2. Galatasaray 7 pts
    3. Milan 6 pts
    4. PSG 5 pts

    Games are Deportivo vs PSG and Galatasaray vs Milan.

    As you'd be hoping if you don't know the result yet, Galatasaray yet again (see post above for the 98-99 season) beat Milan, this time with a 2-0 score.

    At the same time, PSG is leading 0-3 after 55 minutes. That means the table at the 55th minute would be (with Galatasaray beating Milan 1-0 at that stage)

    1. Galatasaray 10 pts (Q)
    2. PSG 8 pts
    3. Deportivo 6 pts
    4. Milan 6 pts

    But instead, this happened: www.dailymotion.com/video/x386jd (not sure why I cannot embed the dailymotion video)

    Pandiani scores a hatrick, Diego Tristan scores one in between of that and Deportivo sends PSG home whilst Deportivo is through.
    Okocha had scored the opener for PSG.

    Ranking at the end of that match day was:
    1. Galatasaray 10 pts (Q)
    2. Deportivo 9 pts
    3. Milan 6 pts
    4. PSG 5 pts

    What makes this even sweeter is that Milan has h2h advantage over Deportivo since they beat them in Spain and they need a win to send them home. But with a PK each, Djalminha (75th minute) and Shevchenko (85th minute), it was not enough for Milan. PSG beat Galatasaray at the end of the day and Milan ended up 4th in the group. There was no exit to the Uefa Cup for third place back then.

    Deportivo's ability to pull a rimonta in a very tough spot was probably born here. And we're thankful to Pandiani for pulling that off as he helped turn around a 4-1 to Milan with a 4-0 thrashing over there a couple of seasons later

    1996-97 Cup Winners' Cup semi final. This tournament was just great. Shame we never gave a rat's ass about the Coppa until Robeto Mancini came along because it'd be a winnable competition for us and now we'd have all three Euro competitions.

    First leg: Barcelona vs Fiorentina




    Second leg: Fiorentina vs Barcelona


    Some of the people you will see here are Ronaldo, Gabriel Batistuta, Luis Figo, Francesco Toldo, Josep Guardiola, Rui Costa, Fernando Couto, Miguel Angel Nadal (tennis superstar Rafael Nadal's less influential uncle), Ivan de la Pena and of course Claudio Ranieri.

    So Flamengo won the Copa Libertadores in the final moments of the game, against run of play and completely unexpectedly.
    This was their first CL final since winning it back in 1981. When Livepool had also won the CL. Which meant they played for the Inter-Contentinental Cup. If you believe in destiny, then you have to accept that it was fate that decided Gabriel Barbosa would get those two late goals following the inexplicable defensive hiccups that led to the goals.



    Enjoy watching Zico tearing Liverpool apart back when football was still an international sport

    Following the recent Materazzi vs Zlatan online confrontation my mind of course drifted to other Materazzi affairs. Shevchenko was the first, but then of course the Zidane incident.

    Here's a catchy French song from a few days after mocking the whole situation that was one of the first real viral videos.



    One of those things that you couldn't stop watching/listening to

    It only needs 20 minute of a game, against the best 11 players of Europe, to see how good Ronaldo was. And how much better then Cristina Ronaldo, the fake Ronaldo.

    Rewinding to 1996. We're at the final day of the Euro group stage and it's Russia vs the Czechs.

    Table after first two games reads:
    1. Germany 6
    2. Czechia 3
    3. Italy 3
    4. Russia 0

    The Czechs advance on h2h record against Italy and the Russians need to win big while Italy loses big to Germany in order to have hopes.

    Italy-Germany ended up 0-0

    Here are the highlights of that epic deciding game in the group






    Smicer equalizes late in the game to send Italy home and the Czech Republic enables a run towards the Euro final only to lose in extra time to Germany in the final which included a fluke goal conceded by their goalie.
    Smicer got his transfer to Lens prior to the tournament but had he waited, maybe a rich contract could have been coming his way as teammates Nedved moved to Lazio, Poborsky to Man Utd and Berger to Liverpool. Three years later he ended up at Liverpool (and eventually scored a goal in the CL final with them against Milan )
