25 days to Euro 2012: Don’t worry Ireland fans, Davor Suker retired long ago

The legendary Croatian striker’s lob over the head of Peter Schmeichel in ’96 was a bit special.

“HE (PETER SCHMEICHEL) looks frightening in the goal but I had done similar things during training and matches before,” the former Real Madrid frontman said of his inch-perfect lob  in the 3-0 win over Denmark at Euro ’96.

“It was one of the most beautiful goals I have scored and was against the best goalkeeper in the world.”
