It’s one of the most famous goals in history. Maradona’s sensational effort against England in the 1986 World Cup came just moments after the infamous “Hand of God” incident. The latter became infamous, the former merely famous as arguably the greatest goal in World Cup history.
For nearly three decades you’ve seen it from this angle. But this brilliant new vantage peels back the curtain not only on the goal but on Maradona’s prodigious skill set. Look at that initial move to get the run started. Quiet brilliance. To the person who released this video: godspeed. I don’t want to know the dens of iniquity you had to frequent to pry this one from the vaults.
