Karel Poborsky Is Responsible For The Greatest Goal In Masters Football History

To celebrate the return of Masters Football after its 11-year absence, we thought we would go back and remember one of the greatest goals in the competition's history. Step forward, Karel Poborsky.

The former Manchester United winger, who spent two years at Old Trafford between 1996 and 1998, made a total of 32 appearances under Sir Alex Ferguson during a short, but successful stint in England.

He has since represented the club on a number of occasions in one-off games. Back in 2017, he featured in a United legends clash against Barcelona and in 2019, he impressed in the '99 treble match vs Bayern Munich.

But perhaps his most memorable moment in a United shirt arrived during a Masters Football clash in Australia against bitter rivals Liverpool on Sky Sports.

After receiving a pass from Quinton Fortune, the former Czech Republic international produced a perfectly-weighted chip over the goalkeeper to give his side a 1-0 lead.

"Goal of the tournament for me that one," said the commentator. "Wow."

It was confirmed back in February that the much-loved event will return to our screens this summer after an 11-year absence.

The popular six-a-side competition, which was successfully screened by Sky Sports between 2000-2011, has now been launched by new sports documentary streaming website 360 Sports Television.

So where will it take place? And when can I watch? The competition will be staged at the Braehead Arena in Glasgow on July 8th, and will feature former players from Liverpool, Manchester United, Celtic and Rangers.
