Maradona’s goal by hand against England in the 1986 World Cup was the most controversial

The shirt that Argentine football legend Diego Armando Maradona wore when he scored a goal with his hand in the 1986 World Cup has been sold for 7.1 million pounds.

Maradona scored the two goals of the match, one of which is known as the “Hand of God”, while the second is known as the “Goal of the Century”, against England in the 1986 World Cup matches.

Thus, Maradona’s shirt has set a new record in the world of sports, as it is the most expensive piece of sports memorabilia ever.

Former England midfielder Steve Hodge offered Maradona’s shirt, which he replaced with him after the match that witnessed the “Hand of God” goal, for sale at an auction 36 years after the quarter-final meeting between Argentina and England in the World Cup finals in Mexico 1986.
