Hand of God

Diego Maradona is back… as a coach.  One of the best Soccer players of all-time is set to return to lead his country (Argentina) back to a World Cup Crown.  Even though he is one of the best players in history, he is most known for his 1st goal in the 1986 World Cup quarter-final match vs England.  The English goalkeeper came out of his goal to punch the ball clear.  However, Maradona reached it first; with the outside of his left fist. The ball went into the goal, and the referee, not having seen the infringement, allowed the goal.  Argentina went on to win the match and the World Cup.  He has also fought a cocaine addiction, so it is good to see La Mano de Dios back again.
