- World Cup 1986 -

The 1986 FIFA Football World Championship was hosted by Mexico. Diego Maradona removed all doubt as to whether or not he was really the best footballer of his generation, and scored one of the best ever World Cup goals in the process. El Diego also showed that he wasn't above cheating, when he scored a decisive goal against England with a blatant handball. The final was a classic, with West-Germany staging an impressive fightback after going two goals down, only to succumb to a third Argentine goal.
