If this was your first World Cup then you probably learnt some new words that day. Jack Charlton's men still reached round two but were soon on I think the biggest difference between Sweden and Brazil in 1994 was that they had 20-plus world class players and we had 11 or 12 who were as good "Romario and Bebeto were two great strikers but if you look back, Kennet Andersson and I scored more goals than they did in that World Cup," Sweden striker Martin Dahlin told me. "We didn't fear them but the problem we had was that we had three or four players who were playing in that game despite injuries..

Andrew Das: You can’t say there weren’t chances in that half. You CAN say there was some abominable finishing.

1994 FIFA World Cup™Group B produced two of the four semifinalists of this World Cup, and was also one of the two groups in which two, rather than three, sides would progress to the second round. Brazil and Sweden proved to be far stronger than Cameroon and Russia in every department. The match between the latter two broke two World Cup records. Oleg Salenko of Russia became the first – and remains the only – man ever to score five goals in a single World Cup match as Russia ran out 6–1 winners against their African opponents. The goals also ensured that Salenko finished the tournament joint-top scorer with six goals, having previously bagged one against Sweden. Cameroon left a mark too as Roger Milla, at the age of 42, became the oldest World Cup goalscorer of all time as he grabbed his side's consolation goal in the match. The result was not enough to take Russia through following heavy defeats at the hands of both Brazil and Sweden. Brazil overcame Cameroon with similar ease before a draw with Sweden confirmed top spot. 17.4m Followers, 1,098 Following, 8,457 Posts - See Instagram photos and videos from FIFA World Cup (@fifaworldcup)
Well if we're going to talk about "what ifs"...that alternate-reality '94 England squad would have been very competitive...had Terry Venables been gaffer. Looking back, those players only really returned to international form after Taylor got booted and he took over(history repeated itself in the early days of the Capello era in '08). Fact is though, if we'd have qualified, Taylor would have remained gaffer and looking back and seeing even older interviews with him, he was clearly a moron. Even under Venables I'm not sure we would have lifted the trophy(we certainly didn't in Euro 96). Under Taylor definately not. Case closed. #85Try telling that to the millions of Hispanics in the US who go daft on it!

For Parreira, who will be in charge of the hosts South Africa at this summer's tournament, success was vindication of his belief that Brazil would only regain their mantle as world champions if they added defensive discipline to their attacking verve - a tactic that had not brought him much popularity back home. "Although most of the Brazilian and international press were always criticising my philosophy, I stuck by my ideas and my principles," he said afterwards.

Not sure I agree with it being a thrilling tournament.No England and all the game on late at night.Even my bet on fancied Colombia went sour. I remember watching their first game vs Romania and after 10 minutes or so Romania hadn't really touched the ball. I smiled and thought' '10-1? Cheers!' As soon as Romania scored the Colombians fell to pieces. I placed my bet after seeing Colombia destroy Argentina in Buenos Aires 5-0. A lot of others followed. I rememmber that ITV had a terrible presenter as well. Can't quite remember his name but he was woeful.Enjoyed watching Germany lose to Bulgaria.

This was my first world cup, just before the final I had missed a penalty in a final which meant my team lost, I was gutted as any 10 year old would be, when baggio missed his in the final I always remember my mother saying see even the worlds best player misses now and then.Nigeria were great I always remember one of their players scoring a brilliant goal from the edge of the area.Just gutted England weren't thereI'd just done my G.C.S.E's then moved to Hong Kong when this tournament started and I watched most games on my own at stupid o'clock spending half time on the balcony looking over the Hong Kong sky line and drinking cans of San Miguel - happy, happy days and seem a long time ago.
A poor World Cup, more notable for "off-the-field" incidents (Escobar's murder, Maradonna's drug taking, Jack Charlton and John Aldridge losing it, and the oppressive heat) than football. I think others have already noted the highlights (Rumania beating Argentina and Bulgaria beating Germany), and there was a lot of dross, most particularly the final (far worse than W. Germany v Argentina in 1990, which is also often slated).This was a step back from 1990, which at least had England in it. USA needs just a draw against its European rival to win Group F and advance to the knockout stage . Happy days.Note: caps include those for USSR, CIS, and Russia, while those for other countries, such as Ukraine, are not counted.

Ekdal of Sweden races in, but he’s off balance and the ball is bouncing high, so he can’t direct it. He probably should’ve used his head there.After a series of passes, Switzerland winds up 50 yards back of where it started. Sweden is pressing on the ball all over the pitch.

. The final in '90 was bad enough, how Brazil and Italy managed to top it is quite an achievement.Following on from Argentina in '78 and Mexico in '86 it certainly was disappointing.Having said that, I thought overall Baggio was outstanding in this tournament as an individual, and had Italy gone on to win the final, I think he could easily be tagged on to the end of the list which usually starts with Pele and Maradona and finishes with Cruyff and Zidane.

"I think the biggest difference between Sweden and Brazil in 1994 was that they had 20-plus world class players and we had 11 or 12 who were as good. They could easily change one, two or even three or four players and still be one of the best teams in the world, or even the best. We couldn't do that but our group game was a better sign of how close we were to being on their level." Russia 2018

The official website of Fed Cup by BNP Paribas features news, live scores, results and photos from the largest annual team competition in women's sport Odd abiding memories of this World Cup for the 14-year-old me:1) the USA-Switzerland match which was the first to be played indoors and seemed to have a strange atmosphere as a result. I sort of latched on to the Swiss team because it was managed by this strange Englishman called Roy Hodgson, who I'd never heard of before. I wonder what happened to him...2) That Hagi goal against Colombia. I had it on in a little portable telly in my room and was fighting to stay awake because it was on so late. Glad I kept my eyes open for that one, what a strike.3) My prevously-thought-to-be-football-phobic French teacher putting a French language wallchart up in the classroom for us all to fill in.4) And, finally, and most enduringly, the mad groundsmen cutting the grass into concentric circles. Why?
This was my first World Cup, however I was only 5 years old and all I really remember was the buzz around the country at the time, I remember a lot of barbecues and parties for the games that we had that year. I don't recall a single thing about the games although people talk about Houghton's goal and McGrath's performance to this day. My lasting memory of this World Cup was a drunken friend of my Dad's blaming my 5-year old self for the defeat to Holland because I wasn't wearing my jersey that day! Needless to say it scarred me and I wear my jerseys on gameday ever since haha. 26.

Switzerland Brazil lacked any creativity in the midfield, which was formed by 3 Defensive mids plus a "worker" (Zinho). Rai (PSG), the one player capable of providing that (creativity) lost his place after a couple of horrible performances in the first stage (the system also did not help him).However, people downplay the importance of Romario in that Brazilian side. Yes, Bebeto was important too, but quite frankly, you could potentially replace Bebeto (some said Edmundo was better then -- concur barring his attitude IMO) and still have about the same attacking power.It wasn't just about the number of goals, Romario was also the playmaker of that team.

I remember this World cup for a missed opportunity for Africa. Nigeria had won the African Cup in January and were playing some brilliant football. They made it to the last 16, only to loose concentration with a few minutes to go and that was that. I also remember Rashidi Yekini scoring his first World cup goal and chanting or screaming in the opposing goal (not sure if he was pacifying some gods or something :-)).Anyway, here's hoping Nigeria can improve their game before this worldcup and match their 94 performance or even go 1 better.

USA 94 was the first World Cup I remember really well. The biggest memories that stuck with me were the Leonardo elbow (that was apparently accidental) that had such severe force that it knocked the American out and left him pretty badly injured, John Aldridge and Jack Charlton going mental at the fourth official as he was being delayed from getting on the pitch and, of course, the Baggio miss.The most shocking event I remember connected to the 94 competition was Escobar being shot dead when he returned to Colombia.

"I was very, very nervous," Larsson recalled with a laugh. "I was 22 at the time and one of the coaches told me 'Henrik, you will have to take the sixth penalty'. I said 'sure, no problem' but it became a problem when I had to go and take it because I knew if I missed all the blame was on me.

Some people spouting some utter rubbish about USA 94.They seem to have something against it because it was held in America and England weren't there.Brazil and Italy were not 'poor', it was not an 'average World Cup'. It was a rather good one, with a disappointing final but there were excellent knock out games. The Germans didn't have their greatest side but it's not always about the big nations. Bulgaria and Romania played some excellent football, Brazil were good. It had individuals stars like Baggio, Romario, Stoichkov and Hagi who produced memorable performances. A really good World Cup. Just cos England weren't there, blame Graham 'Turnip' Taylor for that one.It was only really a decent tournament because some smaller teams upped their game. Brazil, Italy, Germany were all poor. But Sweden, Bulgaria and Romania played out of their skins.Dont really remember the crowds or the stadiums. But I do remember lots of daft new rules (like bringing on golf buggies instead of stretchers and not allowing water). And the weather was too hot which meant that a lot of players were very jaded. 7/10 for USA 1994.

It brought football to the biggest stage possible and made people stand up and be counted (except England). All England fans from my generation rate 1990 as the best world cup, but that is only because England managed to reach the semi-finals and remember golden moments for them and them alone. 1994 wasnt the best world cup but it was better than 1990 for the all the right reasons. Yes the final was dire, but so was 1990. Does anybody really remember the 1990 final? I bet everybody recalls Baggio's miss though. The USA staged what was a difficult event for them and produced the MLS out of it, which is although not the best league, does have a standard that could compete in years to come. I personally wish for the states to get the World Cup again and show what excellent organisation they have. There were moments of brilliance in '94. Hagi, Stoichkov, Bergkamp, Baggio, Hougton. Moments of madness, Maradona, Baggio, Charlton/Aldridge. A new standard was breached and a benchmark for every WC afterwards. Most have surpurpassed, but without World Cup '94 and the mascot Striker, the World Cup would not be what it is today! All the best to all the teams who are competing in South Africa '06. Except maybe one or two!!From the start there were shocks aplenty, starting with the Republic of Ireland's victory over Italy at the Giants Stadium in New York in a match that was notable for Ray Houghton's looping early winner and a vintage defensive display by Paul McGrath - who had the aforementioned Baggio in his pocket.I remember hearing jokes (or at least I think they were jokes) in the build-up that American TV executives had lobbied for bigger goals because of a fear of too many 0-0 draws, and for games to be split into quarters to allow for more advertising during the intervals.
Andrew Das: Nothing says scary moment in a knockout game than a Sweden defender slipping, falling, and turning the ball over in the first minute. Nothing says ‘scoreless tie coming’ than Switzerland wasting the chance with a 25-yard shot 10 yards wide. Brazil's Romario celebrates scoring against Cameroon at USA 1994 Saturday, 02 Sep 2017
Emil Forsberg’s second-half goal was enough for Sweden to beat Switzerland and advance to the quarterfinals.Rodriguez hooks in a cross, and Seferovic has a chance! But his header is saved by a perfectly positioned Olsen. Was that Switzerland’s last hope? The Sweden world cup was extra special because this was the fist time someone from outside of Europe won the world cup which was brazil who 1990 - World Cup Italy Logo. Germany where in the past two world cup finals third time lucky being in the final and manged to win the world cup 2-1.. Baggio was injured and should not have played in the final. Allegedly, the Italy coach, Arrigo Sacchi, was forced to include the pony-tailed one at the insistence of team sponsors. At any rate, Baggio's only natural replacement, Gianfranco Zola, had been wrongly sent off in the match against Nigeria and was not available for the final. Brilliant tournament and the first one where i wactehd most of the games. Missed some of the opening games and rememmber wanting Colombia to do well after hearing about them destroying Argentina and Pele predicting they`d win( i didnt know then that he was always wrong!). After the dourness of Italia 90 this was a welcome change. Great big massive packed stadiums, some great goals (Maradona v greece, Hagi v Colombia, switzerland,argentina, Amokachi v greece, Brolin v romania, al owairan v Belgium, klinssmann v Korea), great games( holland v brazil,argentina v nigeria & romania, colombia v romania, italy v spain, germany v belgium) and some truly great players at their peaks( Klinsmann, Hagi,stoichkov,brolin, romario, Baggio, Maldini, Kenett Andersson). The final was awful but i think their were only 3 0-0`s in the entire 52 games and Italy looked knackered.Baggio i remember had some heavy strapping on one of his legs and Baresi was masterful having missed 4 games for an operation! Brazil were workman-like and possibly the most boring ive seen in a world cup. I do remember a young Leonardo being the most attacking player at left-back(allegedly keeping a young Roberto Carlos out of the squad). Great great memories which kept me going in a difficult summer!
