The obligatory YouTube round up.

The big game was the final of Euro 2008 when Spain took the trophy but will restrict ourselves to the World Cup.

We begin with the glamour of Birmingham in 1966. And a German win:



1982 and the hosts are on the losing side as Germany repeat their 2-1 win from 1966:

2010 World Cup: Holland v Brazil

The Scottish Football Blog at related • 0 views
A few early videos this Friday to get us in the mood for this afternoon's World Cup quarter final.

Much as I've enjoyed a lot of the football I'm still feeling that the 2010 World Cup hasn't really caught fire on the pitch.

Maybe Brazil v Holland is the game to do it.

I'm finding it difficult to see who can beat Brazil and how they can be beaten.

The World Cup is almost upon us and there aren't many genuine football fans left who aren't looking forward to the tournament more and more everyday. The World Cup is the most special of all competitions. We can all remember where we were watching Zinedine Zidane headbutt Marco Materazzi in 2006, or David Beckham's penalty against Argentina in 2002, and of course David Beckham's red card against the same opposition in St Etienne in 1998.

"Soccer" By The Numbers, Literally ...: Historical Trends in the English Language

Soccer Quantified at related • 0 views
I thought I'd take "Soccer By The Numbers" literally for a change. How? For years, Google has been busy digitizing books and printed materials, and they've been going back into historical archives. So now, researchers (and, well, anyone with access to a computer, like me) can search for words or phrases that have occurred in print over the past several hundred years, give or take.

A date to remember: 15 years ago Brazil won it’s 4th World Cup Title

I was 10. I barely remembered 1990's World Cup (except for the fact that Argentina kicked Brazil out). Brazil hadn't won any World Cup title since 1970 and all I could relate to were my grandfather's stories of when he was in Mexico ans saw Pele, Rivellino, Jairizinho and Tostão put on a show to win Brazil's third World Title.

We (ok, me ... ) here at Road to 2010 have been watching football for a mere 11 years as an avid fan.

Call me a neophyte but it's been long enough to have seen some incredible European finals (my team Valencia in 2000, the '05 classic in Istanbul between Liverpool and AC Milan), some wicked goals (Zidane in 2002, David Bentley's smacker today), some awesome World Cup games (Italy-South Korea in '02) and the ultimate - Spain winning Euro 2008.
