Netherlands 1988 - No.12 van Basten.

Home.


Before the 1988 European Championship, 23-year-old Dutch striker Marco van Basten was one of the most promising talents in the game. A hat-trick against England, a semi-final winner versus West Germany and a spectacular volley from an acute angle to see off the Soviet Union in the final, and he was already in football's Hall of Fame.

Renowned for his clinical finishing, with a penchant for scoring opportunistic and acrobatic goals, he seemed to be the ultimate striker. Van Bastens's height and strength allowed him to excel in the air, with his speed and quick reactions, he often took advantage of loose balls in the penalty area and his technical ability saw him execute spectacular strikes with either foot.
Van Basten was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 1992, and European Footballer of the Year three times (1988, 1989 and 1992).

Away.


The finest goal in Championship history, the 'Swan of Utrecht's' wonder strike is often regarded as one of the best of all time. Sent a cross from Arnold Mühren nine minutes into the second half, van Basten said he took a risk with his angled volley, when it seemed he could realistically only cross the ball back into the box.
Watching it all the way onto his foot, van Basten caught it so sweetly the Soviet keeper had no chance as he watched it loop over him.
