This is the last day of the year and in a few hours’ time, we will be congratulating one another for seeing the new year.
Before we finally let go of this year, it is time to lay back and think of sporting moments of this year that will be engraved in our memories for a long time.
As usual, there were triumphant times and times we wished the event never happened in the first place.
So, today, we are asking: What are your unforgettable sporting Moments for 2019. Here are some of ours:
Manchester City’s Premier League title
Manchester City’s win in the English Premier League is something fans of that club with brag about for a long time.
That win was the second win they had in a row in the Premier League. They won the title after their game with Brighton which ended in a 4-1 scoreline.
The good news is Manchester City are also topping the table this season and have remained undefeated so far.
Liverpool’s and Tottenham’s Champions League Comebacks
The Champion’s league comebacks we experienced last season are greatly remarkable.
First, there was Liverpool’s matchup against Barcelona in the semi-final legs. Barcelona already seemed to have their foot in the final games, when they won the first leg with a 3-0 scoreline in their favour.
But in the second leg, Liverpool wowed us with a great comeback, beating Barcelona four goals to none at Anfield.
Just as Liverpool was surprising us with their performance, Tottenham gave another jaw-gaping comeback.
We experienced a second-half hat trick that brought Tottenham back into the game from 2-0 behind at Ajax. They were able to make it to the finals.

Anthony Joshua’s Fall and His Comeback
Anthony Joshua’s fight against Andy Ruiz Jr earlier this year was quite remarkable.
He lost all his championship titles in that match. and that was the second time he was dropped in his career. Worse still, that was his first defeat ever and it happened in the seventh round.
Anyways, that is not where the story ends. There was rematch this month and he won all his titles back.
At the end of the game, Ruiz had a left cut above his left eye while Joshua barely had a scratch on his body.
These are major sporting events that happened this year. Some took us by surprise and others still wowed us even though we somehow expected that outcome.
