The Euro 2012 group stage is in the books, and Czech Republic, Greece, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Italy, England and France are the eight teams left standing prior to Thursday's opening match of the quarterfinals.

Before looking ahead to the remaining teams, though, there were a number of individual moments that stood out during what was a memorable group stage that deserve another look. Three goals, in particular, commanded more headlines than most.

Danny Welbeck's back-heel flick to cap England's comeback victory against Sweden, Mario Balotelli's overhead volley with his back to the goal to seal Italy's victory over Ireland and Zlatan Ibrahimovic's flying side volley against France all had the wow factor that brought the fans in Poland and Ukraine and those watching around the world to their feet.
