Goal of the Century

Video Duration:

In the quarterfinals of the 1986 FIFA World Cup, Argentina's Diego Maradona scored by knocking the ball in with his hand, giving Argentina a 1-0 lead over England. The referee didn't call a penalty and the goal stood. Four minutes later, Maradona scored another goal, dribbling past nearly the entire English squad to knock in what's now commonly known as the "Goal of the Century."
