MARADONA MAGIC

FourFourTwo - - ACTION REPLAY -

Diego Maradona nets ar­guably the best in­di­vid­ual World Cup goal ever. With Ar­gentina ahead in June’s quar­ter-fi­nal thanks to a bit of di­vine in­ter­ven­tion, El Diez picks up pos­ses­sion on the half­way line be­fore be­gin­ning his 60-yard dash past four of Eng­land’s out­field play­ers, sit­ting goal­keeper Peter Shilton on his back­side and dink­ing the ball into the net. “I don’t think I could have done it against any other team as they all used to knock you down; they are prob­a­bly the no­blest in the world,” the pint-sized ge­nius says af­ter­wards. Un­like the Hand of God, eh Diego?
