Joe Cole v Sweden
England 2 Sweden 2, World Cup 2006

Joe Cole scores an absolute screaming volley from 35 yards, as England drew 2-2 with Sweden in their final group match at World Cup 2006. In my opinion, one of the top goals in world cup history.

Goal comes about as Sweden attempts to clear a sustained England's attack, Cole traps it off his chest and sends a high-arcing, spinner to the top-right corner. Some have suggested that this goal was at best fortunate and perhaps a complete fluke. I don't subscribe to that view! Cole controlled that ball into the net, amazing goal!
