Maradona measures the miss in the 1966 final
I had no idea that Argentina was playing England.
A proxy war has broken out between the two rivals with England a bit sniffy at the Scottish adoration of the one that broke their hearts with the most infamous goal in the game’s history.
Terry Butcher will not shake hands and now Maradona says that England should not have won the 1966 World Cup because the ball did not cross the goal line. The goal continued to spark debate until recently when HD replays clearly showed that the ball did not cross the line. The picture above tells us that Maradona came prepared to attack questions on his Hand of God goal.
England have their game own game tomorrow against Germany and maybe a few fans there are also nodding approvingly at Maradona’s remarks. Michael Mancienne’s inclusion should be generating a lot of buzz but all the focus has shifted to the north where Maradona holds court.
