Comments

For the second time Mexico hosted a World Cup and again it was a great soccer show.

The Argentina National Team wasn't one of the top candidates but they had in Diego Maradona on their roster. And he was at the top of his career. With his impossible goals, that included the best goal of the World Cup history, an amazing display of skills and a goal made with his hand, he took Argentina to the final match.

Despite Germany wasn't going to give up easily, and would tie the game after being 2-0 down, a goal by Jorge Burruchaga would give the South Americans their second championship.
