Hand of God goal

June 22 of 1986, Maradona scored Hand of God goal against England during the quarter-final match of the FIFA world cup in Mexico. In the same match his second goal is named Goal of the century. Maradona used his left hand to score the goal and Argentines won 2-1, and the legacy of this event perhaps best symbolizes the rivalry between the two football teams.

After the match Maradona said "a little with the head of Maradona and a little with the hand of God" which is one of the most famous quotes in sport!
