A work of art produced by Diego Armando Maradona on 26th June 1983 is today’s choice to sit alongside goals by Gerard Piqué, Xavi Hernández and Leo Messi.  Football writer Ramon Besa highlights “the ball control, the calm and the ability to dribble around the goalkeeper and the defender” as Maradona goes past Agustín and Juan José to prompt the Madrid fans to give him a standing ovation.
