Notes

  • Disputed GoalWirth the benefit of television replays it is clear that Maradona beat Shilton to the ball by the use of his hand, however the Tunisian referee allowed the goal to stand. Maradona would later claim it was "The Hand of God". There is little doubting his genius for the second goal.
