Some adore them, some hate them. Fortunately, there have been several zorro players who amazed all of us in a very special way. They were not just polishing their ego, they were deciding matches. Here are our five best wizards in floorball history
There were several amazing comebacks in floorball history. But what was going to happen on October 18, 2015 in the Salibandyliiga match between SPV and Erä was from a different planet. Four minutes before the end Erä was leading 6:0. But it ain’t over ’til it’s over, right?
Perhaps you’re too young to remember. Perhaps you’re even too young to have lived back then. But in 1995 Finland won the last European Floorball Championships (in 1994 Sweden won in Helsinki). The tournament was held in Switzerland and the Fins decided the final against Sweden in an intense penalty shootout – thanks to goals by Jari Pekkola and Jari-Pekka Lehtonen and strong goaltending by Jan Gråsten.
Recently our colleagues from FloorballMedia published another goal compilation. “Greatest Floorball Goals in History” definitely shows some pretty skilled and emotional stuff.
With the World Games 2017 in Wroclaw approaching, the IFF published “Story of Floorball”. A promo video explaining why floorball might be the greatest sport of all.
Yep, there were plenty of great shoot outs. But the 2011 Superligan final in Malmö between Storvreta and Warberg was one of a kind. 11.253 spectators saw a 16-round-battle decided by Stenberg’s game-winner.
There was a time when goalies thought it might be a bold idea to dive into a penalty. Unfortunately there are many ways to react. Patrik Jogbring went for a beautiful lob.
Yes, we know, there were so many fantastic final matches. But leading 4:0, then falling 4:6 behind, equalizing and finally dethroning the undefeated World Champion in overtime? Come on.
