It is mentioned that Bin Nasser was the referee who awarded a goal Maradona Who scored it with his hand in the 1986 World Cup against England. In an intervention on France 24, he indicated that Maradona visited him at his home in 2015 to thank him for calculating that goal. Bin Nasser also spoke about the magnificence of that match, especially the second goal that Maradona scored.
Historic victory against the English
The Argentine national team had made its best match in the 1986 World Cup, which was crowned by a historic victory over England with two goals by Diego Maradona, against a goal by Gary Lineker on the twenty-second of June 1986 at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico in front of 114,500 spectators.
There was much talk about this confrontation, and English newspapers, especially the Sunday Times, accused Argentina of buying their match with Peru (6-0) in the 1978 World Cup, which was her passport to the final match and winning the title by beating the Netherlands 3-1 after the extension. “The price was $ 50 million and 35,000 tons of grain,” the newspaper said.
England faced one player: Maradona
What is certain is that England did not confront the Argentine national team, but rather one player, Maradona, and England were not defeated by the Argentine national team, but by Maradona, who was brilliant in every sense of the word.
Maradona was the mastermind, playmaker, and scorer in this match, and he created great troubles for the English who tried all the solutions to stop him, including rough interventions without result because Maradona was more dangerous than being stopped by strong interventions, and his composure and calmness had a great role in following his brilliance and flexing his muscles technically.
An exceptional second half
The most beautiful thing in the match was its second half, which will remain immortal in the minds, whether in terms of the level at which Argentina appeared or the two goals that Maradona scored, especially his first goal, which he scored with his hand deceiving Tunisian referee Ali Bin Nasser.
In the 51st minute, when England goalkeeper Peter Shilton stepped out to pick up the ball after a cross, Maradona, shorter than him by nearly 17 centimeters, jumped in an amazing way and dipped the ball into the goal. The Argentine said the famous sentence after the match when he admitted that he scored the goal, “a little with Maradonas head and a little with God.”
Then he made the second goal from the middle of the Argentine stadium with great splendor, where he launched like an arrow, dodged five defenders and penetrated into the area alone with goalkeeper Peter Shelton, then he gave him and scored with confidence inside the net. This was chosen as the most beautiful goal in the history of the World Cup.
Hand of God or hand of Satan?
And Argentine newspapers wrote the next day, “It is the hand of God,” but rather the hand of “Satan”, the devil who knows how to forgive himself for his good achievements and performances.
England was barely digesting the first goal until it received a second shock, which was realistic this time from an attack led by Maradona from 65 meters, as he got rid of four players in the middle of the field: Peter Reed, Birdsley, Glenn Hoddle and Fenwick and darted like an arrow towards the English goal and dodged on his way to Trevor Stephen before he Chilton, who tried to drop the ball, is unique Maradona I poked it subtly after camouflaging my body and deposited it in the window.
Maradona deserved this time to raise his hands high, happy with his achievement and the goal he scored, in contrast to his incorrect first goal.
England collapsed completely after the goal, but the entry of Chris Waddle and John Barnes gave a new push to the offensive line, and Hoddle almost reduced the difference with a free kick (69), before Lineker did it with a header, scoring his sixth goal in the competition, which was crowned as a scorer.
And the post, Carlos Tapia, was prevented from adding the third goal for Argentina in the 82nd minute.
England did not surrender until the final whistle and almost equalized in the last seconds through Lineker, who penetrated into the area, but Julio Ulartiquecia cut the ball in an appropriate time, so his country qualified for the round of four to face Belgium (2 – zero goals for Maradona), and then to win the title at the expense of West Germany (3-2) in the final.
