    Default Maradona admits wasn't "Hand of God"

    Twas the hand of Diego, not God



    Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona on Tuesday admitted for the first time that he had deliberately used his hand to score a controversial goal against England in the 1986 World Cup.

    The intervention, which Maradona infamously dubbed at the time as the "hand of God", was the first goal in a 2-1 win for Argentina over England at the knock-out quarter-final stage of the competition.

    "I don't for a second regret scoring that goal with my hand," Maradona said on his own television chat show, called "Number 10 Night" in tribute to the days when he was lighting up football pitches in the number 10 shirt for Argentina.

    Maradona said that the disparity in size between himself and England goalkeeper Peter Shilton meant he was never going to head the ball as it was played into the area.

    The Argentinian maestro scored the goal by punching the ball into the net during a jump as Shilton leapt into the air towards the ball.

    Maradona said that once the ball went into the back of the net, he looked at the touch judge and "saw that he was heading back to halfway" for the restart of the match.

    "I said to my team-mates to come and embrace me and celebrate the goal. They were a little hesistant. They came over to embrace me but it was as if they were saying: 'We've robbed them'," he said.

    But Maradona, the Argentinian captain at the time, said he assured his team-mates that "whoever robs a thief gets a 100-year pardon."

    He was referring to British control of the Falkland Islands which lie just off Argentina and were scene of a bitter war in 1982 when the South Americans fought unsuccessfully to regain sovereignty of the islands they claimed as their own.

    It's soccer. I don't even know what 'game' is being referenced in that story. I really don't think anyone cares. God, we should spread the NFL like the flu so people would get what sports could really be. My apologies to soccer fan.

    The second goal was amazing,still that doesn't justify his cheating with the first.

    Possibly the only thing that will get me to watch NFL is if I had Terry Tate chasing me round the room.

    That is the greatest goal I have ever seen! The English have always said he never would've had the confidence to score that if Argentina weren't 1-0 up in the game. Linaker's goal was essentially the equaliser hadn't he cheated.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I admire the athleticism needed to play soccer, but jeez, that sport is so damn boring!

    All sports are boring if you watch one game and that happens to be boring. I'm not a fanatic soccer fan but some games are pretty damn exciting. Yes, I agree that some games where both teams play really defensively are boring but the games between offensive teams are cool. That being said I would not say that soccer is boring.. Just my opinion though.

    Lots of people care. It's soccer. It's the most-played sport in the world. But, I gotta be honest. I really don't care either. lol.

    I grew up with soccer 24/7, but never quite got into it . . . thank God for what all my South American and European relatives call "American football".

    I guess your favourite is what you are born/bred on.
    I'm a huge AFL fan but dig a little soccer and don't mind watching an NFL game here and there.Some of the rules are hard to learn though if your not familar to the game.
