2010
Spain had a wealth of incredible attacking talent at the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ but it was defender Carles Puyol who scored the crucial goal in the semi-final against Germany. In the 73rd minute, he was so determined to meet a corner that he jumped in the way of team-mate Gerard Piqué, who had looked destined to head it. Thankfully for them both, Puyol made a perfect connection and powered a header into the top corner, sending Spain into their first ever FIFA World Cup™ final.
