Has there ever been such a breath taking game in world football previously? Here are our thoughts on games that almost came close:
- Italy 4-3 West Germany 1970
It was dubbed the "Game of the Century" but this seven-goal thriller was dangerously close to fizzling out into a laborious Italian victory until the Germas took it to extra time.
- England 4-2 West Germany 1966
Was it a goal or not? Hurst completed his hat-trick late on in extra-time and complete a stunning victory.
- Netherlands 1-2 West Germany 1974
It was the dream final -- the host nation against the team playing one of the most beautiful brands of football ever seen.
Are we going to see another mouthwatering match before this world cup is over? You never know..Brazil 2014 to date has certainly been a World Cup to remember but possibly for the wrong reasons for Brazil fans!!!
