I still remember watching the England – Argentina game during the ’86 World Cup. When Diego Maradona punched the ball in the net I was in shock. Seriously, as a youngster who’d always been taught to respect the laws of the game (yeah, I was gullible) I couldn’t believe he was getting away with that goal. Well, after all this time, it seems he’s finally admitted he got the goal illegally….sorta. He’s still trying to justify it though.
However, I’m still waiting for him to say his cocaine addiction was really the Nose of God.
