Be Amazed at these SHOCKING World Cup Moments! Beginner’s luck for Senegal - When France and Senegal met in the opening game of the 2002 World Cup, France were the reigning champions and Senegal had never actually made it to a World Cup tournament before. Sheiken, not stirred - Home turf humiliation for Brazil - The hand of… Suarez - in 2010, Ghana was the last African team standing, and the entire continent was behind them. Ronaldo MIA - The 1998 World Cup final was set to make headlines with host nation France taking on reigning champions Brazil. - If cards had been used at the time, my bet is that the 1962 match between Chile and Italy would have topped the 20-card record. Rijkaard spits his dummy out - Death match for Colombia - Football is taken seriously all around the globe, but seemingly nowhere more so than Colombia. Rotten tomatoes for Italy - Italy weren’t exactly favourites to win the 1966 tournament, but when they came up against North Korea in the group stages they definitely fancied their chances.

A double digit win for Hungary - In yet another upset from the infamous 1982 tournament, El Salvador suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Hungary. Beckham’s red card - Football’s golden boy suffered a serious fall from grace in 1998 when he became the second ever English player to receive a red card. The birth of goal line technology - In yet another England upset, 2010 saw Frank Lampard score a goal against Germany which was disallowed in a shocking refereeing error. Three strikes and you’re out - From one questionable refereeing decision straight to another, Graham Poll’s 2006 blunder will haunt him forever. Salenko’s barely-worn golden boot - A Golden Boot winner scoring six goals might not sound so shocking, but incredibly this accolade went to Russia’s Oleg Salenko despite the team being knocked out in the group stages. The Flying Dutchman - Every football fan remembers that goal from Robin van Persie in the 2014 tournament. The great pretender - The World Cup has long been plagued by dramatic dives and fake falls, but Brazil’s Rivaldo wins the Oscar for best theatrical performance. Zidane is a nutter - It was the 2006 final between Italy and France, the defending champions. Hand of God - The most shocking World Cup moment comes from the England-Argentina match of 1986.
