Diego Maradona’s Goal Versus England

Diego Maradona’s amazing dribbling run and goal versus England in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. In total, how many defenders does Maradona dribble past? This still has to be the greatest goal scored in any World Cup and maybe the greatest goal ever scored. Take a look at the genius that was Maradona. He was kicked and fouled throughout the game but still kept going and enabled his team to win this game and the World Cup.

Really, it’s Maradona’s flick into space after turning at mid-field that sets the stage for the dribbling run. After the skillful spin turn he’s able to build up speed with that flick forward. I don’t think there will ever be another soccer player like Maradona.

Quote from Maradona: “To those of you who have cheered on my goals, I thank you from the bottom of my heart”
