    Thanks for checking out this episode, and I apologize for the use of the term "British" in describing the English National Team. You see, I am just some simple, uncultured American. I definitely didn't live in Woking from 1995-1998 and I for sure didn't go to grade school in Egham or hang out at the Guilford Spectrum near my dad's office. I don't even know what those things are! Anyway, this is to say, my bad. I know better. I will be skipping tea today as punishment.

    Yes it is a really great story of football but there was no foul...The "hand of god" this time was the Ref's.

      If England had lost they still could've qualified through play offs, which kinda makes this moment not that special tbh

        And if i am not mistaken, Germany managed to easily qualify in the play offs so it wasn't that big of a deal.

        “Andy Cole” it’s Ashley cole. How bout not getting an American to do this piece.

          No that is not the left back Ashley Cole who never played for Manchester United that is ANDY Cole. As in Andy Cole the golden boot winning striker. Turns out the American is much more than you. Moron

                      As awesome as the goal was, it’s a bit of a sad indictment of English football that we celebrate qualifying for a World Cup so much 😂 but at least we ain’t Scotland 😂

                            Congrats England for winning the “we topped Germany in the 2002 World Cup qualifiers table” while Germany went on to become runners up of the actual World Cup that same year 😂😂

                                Rewind about AFC Bournemouth? Starting 2008 and finishing 2015. I'm a fan so will be biased but I think it's one of the best stories in modern football

                                  This was the greatest goal David Beckham ever scored in his entire career. One of the best international goals ever.
