With the World Cup currently taking over the world of sports, it seems like everyone is an expert on football now. While, naturally, we all cheer for our own countries, we just want to see nice goals and unforgettable moments.
Football has a history so rich, it only makes sense to dig deep and take a look at some of the best moments football has given us – for various reasons.
Diego Maradona’s Hand of God Goal, 1986
This one is pretty timeless. Diego Maradona denied making this goal with his hand for many years, only recently admitting it was indeed his hand and not the “Hand of God”. He also mentioned not regretting doing it.
Roberto Carlos’ Physics Defying Free Kick, 1997
