One of the most remarkable yet controversial World Cup triumph in history, is marked for the first time by the legendary player who made it that way.
“This is Diego Armando Maradona speaking, the man who scored two goals against England and one of the few Argentines who knows how much the World Cup actually weighs”
In June 1986, one of soccer’s greatest and most polarizing figures Diego Maradona proudly hoisted the World Cup above his head. From that day onwards Argentina’s World Cup victory has become the stuff of legend- arguably the best goal in history (Maradona’s “Goal of the Century”) and the worst (the notorious “Hand of God”).
But Argentina’s victory came after months of struggle and discord within the team. Now, thirty years after Argentina’s magical victory, Maradona tells his side of the story, vividly recounting how he led the team to win one of the greatest World Cup triumphs of all time.
