Diego Maradona, in his genius prime, prepares to dribble past Big Terry Butcher – and then Little Kenny Sansom – during Argentina’s infamous 2-1 win over England at the 1986 World Cup finals in Mexico, aka the ‘Hand of God’ match. Inspired by their brilliant captain, Argentina went on to win the tournament, beating Belgium 2-0 in their semi final (Maradona scored both goals) and West Germany 3-2 in the final.
