Matchups I missed and one I didn't

I wished for...

Becker vs. Edberg in the Finals of the French Open
Brazil vs. Holland in the Finals of the Italia'90
France vs. Holland in the 2000 Euro Finals
India vs. Australia in the 1996 World Cup Cricket Finals in Lahore
AC Milan vs. Arsenal in 2006 Champion's League Final
Senna vs. Schumacher for a longer period of time

I got...
Dallas vs. Miami

India Vs Australia in 96?
Nah, that was Sri Lanka's World Cup. There was something really romantic and enjoyable about them, underdogs defeating all the bigwigs and winning it convincingly.

After the mauling in '03 final, i definitely dont want another final with them. My dream wud be Ind Vs Pak in '07 final. Though my guess is it would be NZ Vs SA, just a guess.

Ah! You seem to be a Dutch supporter as well. Hope they do well this time around (for a change). Would love to see an England vs. France final though.

Happy-go-lucky, with age and hindsight it seems fair that Sri Lanka won, but during 1996, I did pray for India.

Raoil, no way a bunch of old no-hopers will play a team whose fortunes hinge upon Peter Crouch and Gary Neville in the final!! Yes, I am a Dutch supporter.

Corp Whore, Argentina I don't like. But I am okay with what you propose.
