first_img Share Belgian Pro League live betting streaming deal for Stats Perform August 21, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Vbet sponsors AS Monaco as Ligue 1 kicks off new season August 24, 2020 In The World Cup’s Finest we ask various individuals to delve into their own personal history of football’s quadrennial showpiece extravaganza, selecting a number of favourites as well as revealing what is their very first World Cup memory.Today we hear from Motti Colman, Director of New Business at Optimove, who addresses a belief that Paul Gascoigne was going to end a 24-year wait by leading England to World Cup glory in 1990, speaks of running around a hotel following a Mark Wright headed finish to secure progression and discusses a Zinedine Zidane performance which he hails as “probably the best individual performance of all time”.  Favourite World Cup:TeamSpain, 2010.  Football played at its purest form. When they got in possession of the ball, they were untouchable.Goal Michael Owen (England v Argentina, 1998).  After Euro 96 we were still buzzing and I really believed we could go all the way. There was so much hype re Owen pre tournament, and when he did that against our bitter rivals, I thought the messiah had arrived.Player Paul Gascoigne (Italia 90).  I think his performances there left a mark on everyone and helped carve out the start of the premier league era.  I cried with him when he got his yellow against Germany, and I genuinely believed he was going to win us the World Cup.GameFrance v Brazil, 2006.  Zinedine Zidane is my favourite player of all time and he came out of retirement just to play in the World Cup. His performance in this match is probably the best individual performance of all time, and I watch this YouTube clip (below) once every 2 months or so. He played Brazil’s golden generation off the park and they all congratulated him after he knocked them out.KitEngland, 1990.  It’s where my love of football really started and that kit, that tournament, those tears, will stay with me forever._________________________________________________________________First World Cup Memory:21 June 1990 (England v Egypt).  I don’t remember watching the first 2 games, but I do remember that everyone had drawn in the group and that we needed to beat Egypt in the final game. I watched it in a hotel in Bournemouth with my grandma and I remember running round the hotel when Mark Wright scored.The World Cup’s Finest is to be a regular feature during the Russia World Cup, profiling a different individual each week day.
