When Barbados & Grenada both tried to score deliberate OGs

Golden Goal sounds like the type of rule that should make a game of football more exciting, but the reality was quite often very different.

With both already knackered teams too frightened to make a mistake that could be punished and lead to their defeat, extra-time periods featuring Golden Goal were usually cagey, tense affairs.

That presented quite the problem for the organisers of the qualifying tournament of the 1994 Caribbean Cup. With only one team qualifying from each of the five groups, it was decided to spice things up by ruling that every match must have a winner – no draws would be allowed.

Unsurprisingly, it created some chaos.

Berbatov: Spurs ready to rival Liverpool attack if Bale joins

Dimitar Berbatov thinks Spurs will have an attack to rival Liverpool’s if Gareth Bale signs for the club this summer.

Tottenham have been in discussions to sign the 31-year-old from Real Madrid seven years after he left for a then-world record fee and all three parties are keen for the move to happen, with the  reporting the deal is already done.

It would mean that Jose Mourinho would finally get to work with a player he tried to sign twice previously, first when he was in charge at the Bernabeu and then when at Manchester United.



And Berbatov was pleased to read reports that Bale is set to take a “step back in the right direction” to join the north London club.

“It’s great news for everyone involved,” Berbatov told .

“Gareth loves Spurs, it’s where he first showed the world what he can do.

“Quality never disappears. At 31, he still has the ability to play a crucial role at Spurs … This is a step back in the right direction for an amazing player.”

Berbatov added: “It’s hard to say that this alone will make Spurs title challengers, but it is a sign to the world that they can do serious business. The players in the squad will be encouraged, and so will potential signings.

“Bale, [Harry] Kane, [Heung-min] Son, Dele Alli. Managers would kill for this frontline … On paper, they now have the strongest front-line in the league along with Liverpool.

“Bale is probably already texting Harry Kane and other Spurs players, chatting and looking forward to linking up.”
