Graeme Souness TEASES England fans with choice of favourite World Cup goal

Posted by

Graeme Souness is known for his outlandish takes and on ITV yesterday evening, he went controversial with the choice of his favourite World Cup goal amid confusion around the original question posed by presenter Mark Pougatch.

Pougatch asked studio guests Souness, Gary Neville and Eni Aluko what their favourite “England World Cup goal” was – Neville chose Brian Robson’s header against France in 1982, Aluko selected Michael Owen’s solo run versus Argentina in 1998, before Souness got the pundits laughing as he chose Diego Maradona’s mazy dribble and finish against England in 1986.

As the laughs died down, Souness claimed that he misheard the question, thinking he was asked for his favourite “World Cup goal”, but the Scotsman stood by his selection, saying “How can you say that isn’t a great goal?”

Souness ended by making another big statement, saying “I think Argentinians make the best footballers.”

Do you think that’s a fair assumption? He’s probably not too far wrong.
