As Barry Davies said at the time: "You have to say that's magnificent".

I see Shilton in that picture too lying on the ground looking back. Did Maradona dribble past him too, or was Shilton just admiring the view?

Crackin' goal right enough.

I think Shilton was lying on the ground when Maradona picked the ball up on the half-way line...

Much as you have to respect Shilton for his long service, etc, he was getting past it by the 86 World Cup. This was a 6 foot tall man outjumped by the 5 feet 5 inch tall Maradona for the first goal in that quarter final. Ho hum...

Seb @ Insideleft said...

Technically he was 5 feet 5 inch, plus arm and fist.

I got chipped once at 5-a-side from 2 yards out. It happens to all the greats!

Chris O said...

Lol! It probably happened to me in a five-a-side match too once upon a time, but my hypnotherapist helped me to blank that one out for the sake of my future sanity...

It's a shame Shilton didn't use *his* arm and fist too. :(

shouldn't Fenwick be listed twice?

Chris O said...

lol... Yes, I suppose so!!

We Love SPAOTP!
