Don’t miss Mexico ’86 doc this Monday


Dominated by one man – Diego Maradona - it remains one of the greatest tournaments in World Cup history. Don’t miss the story of Mexico ’86 this Monday on eir sport 1 from 9.30pm.

Diego Maradona’s reputation as the greatest footballer of his generation was sealed at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, a tournament he dominated like no other player has before or since.

It was a tournament full of sublime moments, most of which were created by the genius of the Argentine, as football’s greatest showpiece returned to the high altitude conditions of Mexico for the second time in 16 years.

See all the greats of that era in action this Monday on eir sport as we continue our FIFA World Cup with the story of Mexico ’86 and how the infamous ‘Hand of God’ incident involving you-know-who still reverberates to this day.
