5 forgotten comebacks in football
Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp and his players celebrating their win over MalagaLet’s put this right at the beginning. It’s highly impossible to list every possible comeback, as extraordinary as they are, in a single article. Ergo, there’s no point in listing the more obvious, famous and celebrated comebacks such as Manchester United’s and Liverpool’s respective Champions League triumphs. However, here are a few others that deserve to be celebrated as excellent comebacks too.P.S. Middlesbrough’s comebacks in the 2005-2006 UEFA Cup are the stuff of legends! You must take a look at it!
#1 Germany 4-4 Sweden
It may have been a draw, but it was arguably one of the best nights for Swedish football. Playing against a rampant Germany during the qualifying campaign for the 2014 World Cup, they quickly saw themselves down 2 goals, and then, by the 56th minute, had conceded 4 goals.
While most people would have written off Sweden at this point, Zlatan started things off with a goal, and then the entire German team seemed to have lost their bearings. But to credit Sweden’s comeback to German laziness would be a disservice as the Swedes refused to give up and kept knocking at the door, finally getting the 4th goal in stoppage time to complete an incredible comeback.
