MOTD MAG: 8 last-gasp international goals!

When nations left it really late to get a result!

Robbie Keane

90 +2 minutes

Republic of Ireland 1-1 Germany, World cup 2002 qualifier

Ireland needed a result to stand any chance of qualification – and thanks to Robbie Keane’s dramatic injury-time equaliser they got one. His shot even went in off the post – double drama!

David Beckham

90 +3 minutes

England 2-2 Greece World Cup 2002 qualifier

Commentators went crazy when Becks curled in a sick 93rd minute free-kick to book The Three Lions a spot at the 2002 World Cup. He’d missed five set-pieces in the game but saved his best for the very last!

Zinedine Zidane

90 +1 minute

France 2-1 England, Euro 2004 group stage

It was looking good for England – they were so comfortable at 1-0 that David Beckham could afford to miss a penalty. Then Zinedine Zidane rocked up to notch two in injury time – that’s why you play to the whistle!

Philipp Lahm

90 minutes

Germany 3-2 Turkey, Euro 2008 semi-final

It was so close for Turkey – first they were ahead, then they went behind, then they leveled – and then a neat one-two saw Phillipp Lahm crash home the winner and send his country into yet another final. Shocker for the Turks!

Sylvain Wiltord

90 +4 minutes

France 2-1 Italy, Euro 2000 final

There’s scoring a last-minute goal, then there’s scoring one in a final! Italy were celebrating on the sidelines when Sylvain Wiltord struck to take the game into extra-time and lead France to a second successive trophy!

Daniel Sturridge

90 +2 minutes

England 2-1 Wales, Euros 2016 group stage

Wales lost Euro 2016’s Battle of Britain in the most dramatic way! Sub Daniel Sturridge popped up to squeeze in a shot and bag a last-minute winner for England at a major tournament for the first time since 1990!

Alessandro Del Piero

120 +1 minutes

Italy 2-0 Germany, World Cup ’06 semi-final

We waited 120 minutes for a goal – then got two in the closing seconds! Fabio Grosso grabbed the first then Alessandro del Piero finished off the Germans, putting Italy on the way to their fourth World Cup triumph!

Geoff Hurst

120 minutes

England 4-2 W. Germany, World Cup 1966 final

This one was so late the fans thought it was all over! As West Germany pushed forward looking for an equalizer, England struck on the counter and Geoff Hurst completed his hat-trick in the most famous moment in English football history!
