My Favourite Sporting Moments of 2010 (Part 1)

Right, 24 days of Advent, 24 lists of things I liked this year. Today: the first of two lists of satisfying sporting moments, this one focusing exclusively on football.

My Favourite Football Moments of 2010

1. The World Cup

The consensus is that it wasn’t a great World Cup, but watch this and remember how many memorable moments there were: Robert Green’s howler; Frank Lampard’s goal that wasn’t; Holland beating Brazil; Keisuke Honda; the chest-high karate kick in the final; Iker Casillas’ girlfriend; Diego Forlan; the Germans; Uruguay cheating Ghana out of a semi-final place; and loads more.

2. Barcelona 5 Real Madrid 0

Blimey. The performance of the year, surely.

3. Ipswich Town 3 Coventry City 2

In a year with hardly anything to remember at Portman Road, I guess I have to pick the injury time from the first home match of 2010.

4. The best goals not scored by my team
