If Mexico 1970 belonged to Pele, Mexico 1986 was the sole preserve of Diego Maradona.
The Argentina forward almost single-handedly (pun intended) raised his country to new heights, as they regained the World Cup they had first won on home soil in 1978.
Where Pele had been surrounded by great players, Maradona was, arguably, the driving force behind the 1986 triumph for Carlos Bilardo's team.
If there was to be one defining moment for Maradona in those finals, it was the quarterfinal against England, where the angel and devil within the Argentine talisman collided with devastating effect.
While the first goal against Bobby Robson's side was borne of a poor English clearance and a dubious punch over the head of oncoming England goalkeeper Peter Shilton, Maradona's second was a moment of breathtaking beauty, as he danced past several challenges before slotting the ball home.
Maradona would go on to lift the World Cup with victory over West Germany in a thrilling 3-2 win, but the goals against England would mark history.
