From my Trib column eulogizing Diego Maradona:
“One game summed up Diego Maradona: Argentina’s 2-1 victory over England in a 1986 World Cup quarterfinal. Maradona scored both his side’s goals.
He cheated to score the first, disguising a handball with a flick of his head. 'The Hand of God.'
The second involved skill that only God could bestow as Maradona dribbled from beyond the center line and through England’s entire team. It’s arguably the greatest World Cup goal ever.
That was Maradona. That contradiction. The devil on one shoulder, God on the other.”
