The Prince of Argentine football, the winner of two World Cups with the Albeiceleste, Diego Maradona is the greatest of all time according to many, maybe only comparable to a certain Pele. He scored tons of goals with his mazy runs and picture perfect finishing and we take a look at 5 of the best.
5. Argentina vs Greece, 1994 World Cup
Having missed the earlier World Cup, Maradona returned to national colors in the 1994 edition which was hosted by the United States.
Against Greece in the group stage, he scored a tremendous goal with his left foot after brilliant link-up play between the midfielders and the forwards.
4. Argentina vs Belgium, 1986 World Cup
Very similar to his solo effort against England 10 years back, Diego Maradona scored another brilliant goal against the Belgians when he struck from just inside the box with his left foot after having controlled the ball beautifully in a congested Belgian defense.
3. Napoli vs Atlanta, 1987 Coppa Italia
A brilliant piece of interplay between Maradona and his fellow Napoli forward led to Maradona scooping the ball over the Atlanta goalkeeper in what was a brilliant display of ball control and outstanding eye for goal.
2. Argentina vs Brazil, 1990 World Cup
The Argentine supporters had much voice in the 80s and 90s thanks to the enormous talent of Diego Maradona who lit up the game with his skills and dribbles.
