Fiore strike scoops top spot

The Match of the Day team have selected Stefano Fiore's stunner against Belgium as the goal of the tournament.

Picking a winner from ten super strikes was no easy task but Alan Hansen and Martin O'Neill chose Fiore's goal ahead of Patrick Kluivert's opener against France in second and Zinedine Zidane's free-kick against Spain in third.

Fiore's goal came in Italy's 2-0 win over Belgium and capped a fine move involving striker Filippo Inzaghi.

Cutting in from the left, the midfielder played a perfect one-two with Inzaghi and proceeded to let fly with a curling thunderbolt that gave Belgian keeper Filip De Wilde absolutely no chance.
