World Cup Goals Galore

World Cup Goals Galore
World Cup Goals Galore - Thursday 1 June, BBC THREE 2230 BST
A rundown of memorable World Cup goals backed by a toe-tapping soundtrack featuring some of the coolest bands around will feature in a special BBC programme.

World Cup Goals Galore is a 90-minute celebration of some of the tournament's greatest action.

And, unlike in any of the matches you might see in the coming weeks, not one of these efforts misses the target.

Comedian Sean Lock is your host through 240 of the greatest goals that the World Cup has ever seen, but don't expect any Alan Hansen-style analysis, as each one is divided up into utterly random and unscientific categories.

So discover for yourself who was responsible for the dodgiest ever goal in World Cup History - could it have been the "Hand of God" or maybe it was Geoff Hurst in 1966 with a huge assist from a Russian linesman.

Watch to discover who scored the best free-kick, header and volley, but also the biggest ever fluke and the most impressive moustache that adorned a World Cup goalscorer.

Find out if daisycutter is still accepted football vocabulary, and whether Jimmy Hill was right, and David Narey was responsible for the top toe-poke of all time.

In amongst all the categories, you can marvel as the top 10 World Cup goals ever are revealed.

What was your favourite? Michael Owen in 1998 maybe, one of Pele's efforts or another from the magical Brazilian team of 1970?

Tune in at 2230 BST on BBC THREE on Thursday 1 June to find out.
