Top 5 Moments Of The Season

The 2022-23 football season was full of drama and entertainment, with Manchester City eventually beating Arsenal to the title and the relegation battle going down to the wire in the Premier League.

As the dust settles on a thrilling season, we've selected five of the most memorable moments.

5. Morocco reach the World Cup semi-Finals 

Three prior African teams had reached the competition's quarter-finals but were unable to advance.

It was different this time.

Morocco have lighted up this World Cup, and its fans were rewarded by seeing their team become the first from their continent to reach the semi-finals.

Beating 'European giants' such as Spain on penalties and Portugal. Thus creating the 'Rocky' story of the 20223 World Cup.

4. Stoppage time drama at Anfield

Throughout the Premier League 2022-23 season, one constant has been the division's capacity to produce dramatic finals. You can always bet on stoppage-time drama, from Kane's equalise at Stamford Bridge in August to Reiss Nelson's heroics in Arsenal's stunning 3-2 win over Bournemouth

With just under 15 minutes remaining, Son made it 3-2, setting up a thrilling conclusion, and former Everton striker Richarlison levelled in the third minute of stoppage time, his first Premier League goal for Spurs.

But, right from kick off, Jota took advantage of Lucas Moura's weak back pass to score past Fraser Forster and send Anfield into a frenzy. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp injured his hamstring on the touchline following the goal.

3. Conte explodes

While Conte's Tottenham failed to generate many memorable on-field moments, his explosive post-match outburst at Southampton remains one of the most spectacular off-field incidents throughout the Premier League 2022-23 season.


Conte lashed out at his own "selfish players" after Spurs blew a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 against the bottom-of-the-table side, before bringing up the club's trophy drought. A week later, he left Tottenham.

2. Napoli win the Serie A

They won the league title for the last time in 1990, when a Diego Maradona-inspired team added to their inaugural triumph three years earlier.

They now have a new superstar lineup, with Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen scoring 21 goals in 26 league games and Georgia winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia adding 12 goals and 10 assists.

Luciano Spalletti, who won the Coppa Italia twice with Roma, becomes the oldest manager to win Serie A at the age of 64.

1. Messi finally wins the World Cup

Argentina's 35-year-old maestro clasped his hands together in ecstatic anticipation of his crowning achievement, donning the traditional Arab robe known as a bisht before ultimately lifting the World Cup to the sky amid an explosion of flashlights and pyrotechnics.

Messi had fulfilled his ambition. The gap in his sparkling collection had been filled, the set complete following probably the most magnificent World Cup final in history, a game for the ages that tore at the emotions and played havoc with the pulse rates before Argentina's superstar reached his pinnacle.
