Belgium v. Saudi Arabia: ’94 World Cup Game at RFK Stadium

It’s Sunday and you’re probably catching up on last week’s GoDC posts. Here’s a really quick one for you, and you’ll enjoy this if you’re a soccer fan.

If you’re a casual fan, you may not remember that in 1994 the U.S. hosted the World Cup, and some of the games were held ar our own RFK Stadium. Below is a video of one of the greatest goals in World Cup history. Saeed Al-Owairan sprints across the length of the field to score an unforgettable goal, helping the Saudi team advance to the second round for the first time ever.

Happy Sunday. Unfortunately for you, tomorrow is Monday.
