Best Football (Soccer) World Cup Finals

The Greatest Finals of the Biggest Tournament, The World Cup.

The Top Ten

1 England - Germany 2-2 (4-2 aet) (1966 Edition)

Jogo histórico

Because Geoff hurst scored a hat trick and no one else has in a world cup final. England are the best. Extra time. "People are on the pitch they think its all over it is now"

Yeah great game with hurst scoring the only ever hat rick in a world cup final and most importantly england winning the world cup

Two of the biggest world rivals, playing in a world cup final. England won the world cup and scored a hatrick on homeground. How can it not be the best world cup finals ever?

2 France - Brazil 3-0 (1998 Edition)

Zidane's brace in the first half was the best moment of my life. Petit's late goal was pretty awesome too.

France won the World Cup on homeland - MatrixGuy

The best football world cup final

Most chances on goal with a lot of close misses.

All-round most entertaining final ever!

By far the best final.

7 Uruguay - Argentina 4-2 (1930 Edition)

Uruguay won the first edition off the World Cup at home - MatrixGuy

8 Argentina - Germany 3-2 (1986 Edition)

Certainly the most dramatic WC. The great Maradona assists twice on goals. Germany, being down 2-0 never quit and came back to tie it at 2. Then, Maradona's second assist, as 3 or 4 German defenders move at him, he lays the ball on burruchagga's foot and the rest is history. Maradona willed his team to the title!

Matrix Guy has a post on almost everything! And they are getting old.

The most dramatic WC ever. Argentina dominates to take a 2 zero lead, Germany valiantly fights back to tie is 2-2. The ball comes to Mardonas foot near midfield with 5 minutes remaining, and he makes the best pass in history while 3 German defenders converge towards him. He hits Burruchaga in stride, who outraces the German defenders to slip in the goal to win it. Maradona also assisted on the 2nd goal and wins by playing a brilliant final, without even scoring.

With an unstoppable Maradona, Argentina won the World Cup - MatrixGuy
