Below is the list of the top 12 shocks in football history

Manchester United vs. Manchester City (1-6)
  • English Premiere League - October 23, 2011

Let's start with the most recent shocking football match result that breaks the 81 years history of Manchester United, that is losing at old trafford with the highest margin, Man. Utd was simply humiliated by his rookie rivals from the same city, Manchester City, the match was really a pleasure for all MU haters out there, a minus 5 for them, that have never happen since September 10 1930, where MU loses 0 - 6 to Huddersfield Town. What a happy and wonderful memories ^_^, for haters i mean. 

Inter Milan vs. Napoli (0-3)
Italian Serie A - October 2, 2011
Although Inter is having a bad game, it's very clear that the referee really helped Napoli in winning the clash that night. It was Inter midfielder Joel Obi who picked up his second yellow card for a foul on Christian Maggio in the 41st minute, having the 1st one that really are not a foul at all, that resulted in a Napoli penalty, although replays showed that he pushed Maggio outside the area. Inter goalkeeper Julio Cesar blocked Marek Hamsik’s ensuing penalty but Napoli defender Hugo Campagnaro—who clearly was inside the area before Hamsik’s kick—scored from the rebound. The half ended amid fierce protests and new Inter manager Claudio Ranieri was ejected during the break. Despite being a man down, Inter threatened for an equalizer early in the second half before Maggio doubled Napoli’s lead in the 56th when he beat Japan fullback Yuto Nagatomo to lift the ball over Julio Cesar.
Shrewsbury vs. Everton  (2-1) 
FA Cup 3rd Round - January 4, 2003
top 12 most shocking football results
Shrewsbury, struggling in the old 3rd Division (League 2), knocked out Premiership side Everton. The Toffees had a certain 17 year old striker by the name of Wayne Rooney in their starting line up but he was upstaged by home skipper, Nigel Jemson, whose two goals sent the Shrews through. His first was a fine free kick on 37 minutes and, although sub Niclas Alexandersson equalized for Everton in the second half, the experienced Jemson won it in dramatic fashion with a header two minutes from the end!

Germany Vs.Croatia (0-3) 
World Cup 1998, Quarter Final - June 26, 1998
top 12 most shocking football resultsThe Germans went into the World Cup in France as one of the favourites after their Euro 96 victory, but their hopes were shattered in the quarter finals as Croatia gained revenge for their defeat to Germany at the same stage in England two years previously. With the game at 0-0, German defender Christian Worns was given a red card and Croatia went on to hit three without reply: Robert Jarni, Goran Vlaovic and Davor Suker netting the goals. Croatia briefly troubled hosts France in the semi-finals before losing, but earned 3rd place at the tournament with a win over Holland, Suker scoring the winner to seal the Golden Boot.

Wolves vs. Man United (1-0) 
English Premier League - January 17, 2004
We gotta had to find a place for Wolves somewhere and this must rank as one of the biggest of recent years in the Premier League! MU performed valiantly in a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford, Wolves duly pulled off the shock of the season a few months later as Man United were beaten in the top versus bottom showdown at a packed Molineux. Striker Kenny Miller capitalised on a slip by Wes Brown and converted past Tim Howard to give Wolves a dramatic win over the champions. As it turned out, the result had implications at the top of the league, as United slipped off the summit to allow Arsenal a way in, en route to their glorious unbeaten season. Sadly, for Wolves, it was a brief highlight and they were eventually relegated in last place.

Man United vs. Leeds United (0-1) 
F.A. Cup 3rd Round - January 3, 2010
Manchester United had never before been knocked out of the F.A Cup 3rd Round under Sir Alex Ferguson, and it had been 26 years since a lower league club had got the better of them. But both records were broken in the opening days of 2010 as they were shocked by rivals Leeds at Old Trafford. Striker Jermaine Beckford was the match winner for the League One club on 19 minutes, controlling a superb ball over the top from Johnny Howson and holding off Wes Brown before sliding the ball tantalisingly beyond keeper Tomasz Kuszczak.

France vs. Greece (0-1) 
Euro 2004 Quarter-final - June 25, 2004
The reigning champions France had been far from convincing in the group stage, despite coming through as winners. They met the highly efficient and organised Greeks in the quarter final, who had stunned the hosts Portugal in the tournament’s opener. France were again poor, and a second half header from Angelos Charisteas gave Greece a famous win. The game marked the end of a golden period for the French, as the likes of Desailly, Lizarazu and Pires closed out their international careers. Hero Charisteas called this win the greatest moment in Greek football - but that was still to come!

Spain vs. Switzerland (0-1) 
World Cup 2010 Group H - June 16, 2010
The European Champions had 45 wins from their previous 48 games, so an opening win against Ottmar Hitzfeld’s Switzerland seemed a formality. But, despite completely dominating as usual, Spain for once couldn’t find the back of the net and were punished when Gelson Fernandes broke away to give the Swiss a shock win. It was nothing but a small blip for the Spanish, however, who recovered to win every game, including the World Cup final against Holland.

U.S.A vs. England (1-0) 
World Cup 1950, Group 2 - June 29, 1950

top 12 most shocking football results
U.S.A pulled off one of the biggest shocks in World Cup history as they beat England in Brazil in 1950. The English were rated as one of the best international teams in the world at that time, whereas the American side was filled with semi-professional players. A 38th minute goal from Joe Gaetjens was enough to see off England and give U.S.A, without doubt, the greatest win in their history. The result spawned a great quote from the American defender Harry Keough: ‘Boy, I feel sorry for these b******s (England). How are they ever going to live down the fact we beat them?’ A 2005 film, called The Game of Our Lives, depicts the background and story of the game.

Denmark vs. Germany (2-0) 
Euro 1992 Final - June 26, 1992
top 12 most shocking football results
Denmark had not even qualified for the European Championships in Sweden, but Yugoslavia were disqualified due to the ongoing wars in their country, and as qualifying group runners up, the Danes took their place. Despite a loss to the hosts during the group stage, they defeated holders Holland on penalties in the semi final, then beat Germany, the overwhelming favourites and World Cup winners, in the final in Gothenburg. Goals from John Jensen and Kim Vilfort at the Ullevi Stadium capped a remarkable story for Denmark.

France vs. Senegal (0-1)
World Cup 2002 Group A - May 31, 2002
France were the defending World Cup and European Championship champions, and were expected to kick off the 2002 World Cup with a commanding win. Senegal, making their first appearance at the finals, didn’t read the script and stunned Les Bleus with a marvellous victory in Seoul. Papa Bouba Diop netted in the 30th minute to give the Africans a dream start and, despite late pressure, held on for a deserved win. It got no better for France, who exited the tournament at the group stage without scoring a single goal. Senegal built on their win to make the quarter finals.

Portugal vs. Greece (0-1) 
Euro 2004 Final - July 4, 2004
Greece had already beaten Portugal in the tournament’s opener, and had gone on to beat France and the Czech Republic in the quarter finals and semi finals respectively. The hosts, however, were still big favourites to claim the Euro 2004 trophy in their home country, despite not hitting top form throughout the summer. In the event, the Greek fairytale continued as another fine defensive display led them on the way to an unbelievable success. A second half header from Angelos Charisteas was enough to see them defy all the odds to pull off the greatest shock in football history!
Any side that manages to beat Portugal (twice), France and the Czech Republic surely deserves to win the trophy!
