Marco Van Basten Scores Big

It was one of the biggest stages in world football. The 1988 European Championship Final. The Dutch were ahead thanks to Ruud Gullit’s first half effort but a moment of genius from Marco van Basten soon sealed the title for Holland. As Holland dispossessed the Soviet Union in the middle of the park, the ball found its way to Arnold Muhren. From out wide the midfielder put in a lovely ball out to the edge of the penalty box on the right. Van Basten came charging in and from what seemed like an impossibly acute angle his guided the ball brilliantly into the top left hand corner. It was a goal worthy of winning a European Championship outright.
