It was the summer of 1986 and the quarter finals of the Mexico 1986 World Cup were taking place. This was a game that was a key part in the already intense Argentina and England football rivalry.
Diego Maradona,the man known as the Argentinian football god had a lot of responsibility resting on his shoulder. In the 51st minute Maradona made a darting run into the box and jumped for the header contesting against the English goalkeeper who was also in the air. But men’s hands went for the ball. Maradona’s getting there first. He had scored!One nil to Argentina.
Soon after great dribbling from Maradona he drew the gap to two. England could only get one back.
