Argentina 3 – 2 West Germany


If you’re 2-0 up in the World Cup final and you’re only quarter of an hour away from the final whistle, you could forgive yourself with getting carried away. The job’s pretty much done. But then, the (West) Germans. Now, Maradona didn’t play particularly well in the final but scored four (three and a half, maybe) goals in the previous two games against Belgium and England. Even with him having a day off, Argentina were still too good. If you can’t celebrate a 3-2 World Cup final – whoever the teams – the game probably isn’t for you.
