The World Cup in Brazil is coming into view and everyone is hoping this summer's carnival can take its place among some of the great tournaments of the past.

That won't be easy though, as this series will testify. In the run-up to the tournament, we're counting down the 100 greatest World Cup moments.

Check out our latest instalment below, and for any you missed, see the gallery at the end of the article.

26 pass Esteban Cambiasso goal for Argentina in 2006

Argentina looked like the team of the tournament in 2006. Or at least until they were knocked out in the quarter-finals.

Midfield general Juan Roman Riquelme played like a quarter-back, with the team revolving around his assured passing.

Argentina's slick movement and inventiveness was best encapsulated with Esteban Cambiasso's goal during the 6-0 drubbing of Serbia.

26-passes and a master class in movement off the ball led to Cambiasso's drilled effort into the top corner to score one of the great World Cup goals.
