Ranking Diego Maradona's 10 Greatest Goals

0 of 10

    The Argentinean manager who promised to go streaking through downtown Buenos Aires if his team won the World Cup also had something of a flashy playing career.

    Diego Maradona, one of the best footballers of all time, scored 34 goals for Argentina and an incredible 258 goals for his club teams.

    The problem with making a list like this is that there isn't footage of all 292 of his goals and I didn't get to watch every single one. I would love to do that sometime.

    However, from footage available, here are Maradona's 10 best goals.

No. 10: Vs. Red Star Belgrade

1 of 10

    Anyone who's ever tried this knows what a feat it is.

No. 9: Vs. A.C. Milan in 1988

2 of 10

    No chance for that poor goalkeeper.

No. 8: Vs. River Plate

3 of 10

    Sorry the quality isn't the best, but I love this goal.

No. 7: Vs. Juventus

4 of 10

    Tough angle, tough distance.

No. 6: Vs. Belgium in 1986 World Cup

5 of 10

    Not only great control, but also great change of speed.

No. 5: Vs. Milan in 1987

6 of 10

    Another nice bit of work from Maradona when he was with Napoli.

No. 4: Vs. Lazio in 1985

7 of 10

    What a crazy man.

No. 3: Vs. Greece in 1994 World Cup

8 of 10

    One of the greatest things about Maradona was how many different kinds of goals he could score.

No. 2: Vs. Verona in 1985

9 of 10

    The confidence with which he hits this is unbelievable.

No. 1: Second Goal vs. England in 1986 World Cup

10 of 10

    Sure the defending was horrid, but...wow. Goal of the century.
