WHILE THIS YEAR’S WORLD CUP is sure to have its fair share of electrifying strikes, years past have shown us the same. Take a look at 10 of our favorite World Cup goals of all time, in no particular order.
Diego Maradona: Argentina vs England, 1986
No, it’s not the notorious “Hand of God” goal. This one came less than 5 minutes later during the same game. Upon receiving the ball, Maradona turned on the jet engines and covered 60 meters in 10 seconds, dribbling past four English defenders (Terry Butcher had the joy of being juked around twice) and goalkeeper Peter Shilton before releasing the ball into an open goal. Though still up for debate, the goal was voted the FIFA World Cup Goal of the Century in 2002 by fans from all over the globe.
