Argentina On Their Way To Knockout Phase Exactly 24 Years After Diego Maradona's 1986 Hand Of God

World Cup favourites Argentina meet Greece today in their final match of the group phase and a draw will be enough for the Albiceleste to book their ticket for the first knockout round on what will be quite a special day for Diego Maradona.

Exactly 24 years ago, the current Argentina coach guided the South Americans to the semi-finals of the 1986 World Cup by netting two of the most famous goals in the history of football to beat England 2-1.

The story is too old to be commented.
