Episode Summary

Jorge Valdano - Argentina, 1986
The 1986 World Cup will always be dominated by thoughts of Diego Maradona's magical runs, but Jorge Valdano was almost equally as important to the squad's offense. Valdano's fourth goal of the tournament came in the final. After the striker was dispossessed in the box by a German defender, the ball fell to Maradona, who set up a streaking Valdano for the goal. He slotted into the lower right corner, putting Argentina up 2-0. At that moment, Valdano said, he looked into the crowd and thought, "We're world champions." Argentina won 3-2.moreless
