  • Este tipo es, literalmente, un caballero inglés. Sos un maestro, Gary. Y no lo digo porque hable con tanta admiración y respeto sobre Diego. Es una buena persona, un jugador que terminó su carrera sin que le hayan sacado una sola amarilla siquiera, en ningún partido. En ninguno! Amable, conciliador, un buen tipo ♥️

    • Y un LETAL número 9, con físico y técnica de mediocampista, pero si le tirabas una pelota a la cama a la 3 de la madrugada, se despertaba y definía.

  • Gary, like Maradona belonged to a golden generation composed by fantastic football players, and one of them was Diego. He's famous to this day by the Hand of God in that football match Argentina - England in Mexico 86'.

  • the key point here, which lineker doesn't express clearly here, is that the ball 'comes down' but bounces before maradona helps it back up with a kick. some people may think maradona just kicks it back up without the ball hitting the ground first. that would be impossible and perhaps that's what these pundit players are thinking as lineker doesn't make it clear - lineker just says and it came back down. letting the ball bounce first is far more possible. i'd say the likes of messi and others would master that no problem, if it's not something they do naturally.

    • @joseph if it was normal and others could do it, then he wouldn't mention it. As for other greats, they haven't done it, so when they do we will applaud them. And also, he did it with an 80s ball, not today's lighter balls.

      Abby 30Abby 3022 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • @Abby 30 was that his key point - is that why he stated that bit at the end of his story as an afterthought. that's a good time to make a key point. he went to great length to convey what maradona did with the ball but left it unclear. what maradona did with the ball was good skill, which pele, messi, george best, kinkladze would surely have no problem doing. the english players who tried to do it, of course they didn't manage a feat of exceptional skill as they were not one of the greats. although, if they practiced it enough like maradona, their three tries would turn into more very soon. in fact, lineker is so in awe of maradona, i think he was fooled into thinking maradona did hit the ball up before it hit the ground. as that really is the way lineker describes it here, very misleadingly, without intending to. he is just starstruck. maradona is great and i'm a fan but he did not do the impossible and there other great players who have a touch to equal his, though each touch of the great players is subtly different in style to the others.

      josephjoseph22 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • But the key point is that no other player was able to do it!

  • I still think England should of man marked him in that game,I was stunned when I only recently discovered they had no special plans for maradonna that day,man marking does and has worked many times against great players,and yes I know he was a genius and it may not of worked,but then again it might of,Robson should of picked his fittest best tackler and had his team prepare him to stick to maradonna like glue every single move he made in that match

  • Pele is no doubt the best and greatest football player ever, but also possibly the greatest sporting phenomenon ever to grace this earth, especially in terms of achievements, and here's why. I'm sorry, until any player can win 3 world cups and almost 4, and change how a sport is played, reinventing the game completely, and be so influential to a country that had never won a world cup to help them win at the age of seventeen for the first time, coming from poverty to dominate everything about the game and then have every player after and since him including Maradona and Messi copying him and trying to match him in style of play and achievements to this day, until another player is even close to this, Pele is no doubt not only the best football player ever, but possibly the biggest sporting phenomenon ever. And there is a reason for this. Both his right and left foot could do anything with the ball and we're just as good as eachother as a fact, not metaphorically speaking and no other player, not even Maradona or Messi have been blessed with this weapon, most especially to this degree. Watch how from outside the box, Pele strikes the ball with equal accuracy and power to score his goals, there is no other great that can do that. And yes he achieved all he did at a time when not just poverty, but racism at great extremes was against him, and at a time fouling brutally was allowed even more ruthlessly than in Maradona's time, and yes the pitches were even worse.

    • But pele had the best players in the world in his team. Maradona won trophies with mediocre teams, that's why Maradona is the greatest!

    • "until any player can win 3 world cups and almost 4, and change how a sport is played, reinventing the game completely,".... and "Pele is no doubt not only the best football player ever, but possibly the biggest sporting phenomenon ever"... and so on... Propaganda victim with a rigged hero... Hulk does not exist. Pelé was not even the best football player of his generation.

  • Lots of respect for Lineker on this one, Diego was the greatest of all, it just wasn't all about the football. The humility about himself and the respect for his teammates, the love for his country all added to his icon status. The hand of God goal, give me a break, Diego was 5'5 inches tall and Shilton was supposedly 6'0 foot and he beat him with his hand to the ball, fcuk off and own up to it Peter.
