For me it was Italy-Iraq during the olympics. The 2 teams took their team photos as a bunch. Great day for Iraq and the sporting world.

2nd I'd say its either Greece in Euro 2004 or Porto-Monaco for CL.

England vs France in the Euros was sumthing special.Its "Football...Bloody Hell." Part 2.Zizou destroyed England with that freekick and penalty,plus he vomitted before taking the spot kick!

plus,in no particular order..
.Man United winning the FA Cup.
.Man United,beating Arsenal 2 nil at OT to halt their unbeaten run at 49 games.
.Rooney,scoring his debut hattrick against Fenerbache.
.Barca vs Milan,Ronaldinho scoring that magical winner.

Rooney Hat trick i'd agree. Another i'd put in for me is Milan down 2-0 in the Derby against Inter, then scoring 3 goals in the second half to win.

Palace's late run to the play-offs followed by some amazing play-off games, and ultimately, promotion. :D

Sanli Tuncay's hat trick against united. If you watch the full match, you can see how passionate turkish fans are. The drums after each goal were hurting my ears.

Celtic
Personally, for me it was Celtic eliminating Barcelona from the UEFA Cup, at a time when they were on fire. Then just a couple of days later travelling to Ibrox for 'Sombrero Sunday II' and beating them also. I was in Florida and watched both games at strange times, but so happy nevertheless.

I remember that game Milanista, 2 awesome second-half long rangers from Kaka and Seedorf, fantastic match. Although Deportivo thumping Milan was also very exciting.

England France then Portugal England were both fantastic to watch, the first for the hilarity of England being 'cruelly' gubbed in minutes and the second for a superbly entertaining game, and for England again being gubbed :mrgreen:.

Those are all great moments but most of them will probably occur sooner or later in 2005 except for #1 and #2.And since Greece did win the Euro cup the winner has to be #2.It is rare that what was once one of the worst teams in europe becomes the champions even if there football was boring.

Oh yeh, moments... right, here goes:

1. Greece winning the Euro
2. Gerrrard's strike vs Olympiakos
3. Dellas' header vs the Czechs

5. Portugal vs England, particularly when Lampard scored... chaos

7. Ronaldinho lofting it over Madrid's defence... sensational
8. Mellor vs Arsenal
9. Seeing Italy go out of the Euro, particularly when they found out while they celebrated their winner

To be honest i think United-Arsenal was pretty big. That match created so much fake confidence and media attack on Arsenal....

Best moment of 2004: Costinha's goal in the minute 89 against MU in Old Trafford, just beautiful... and the CL final of course :P and Portugal vs Greece that proved once and for all that Scolari is a shitty coach for Portugal that does not study his oponents...

even my none man u fans friends say that man u beating the Gunners to end their run was a big moment in recent football history. And ruud's celebration after the penalty says it all. imagine if arsenal won??? they would have gone from strength to strength... that win really changed the face of EPL.
