Argentina 3 West Germany 2

The final of the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico between Argentina and West Germany was a classic encounter that will live long in the memory. The South Americans captained by their talismanic figure of Diego Maradona extending their lead early into the second half courtesy of goals from Jose Brown and Jorge Valdano to make it 2-0. This sparked their European opponents into life and they fought back to claim a equaliser with just minutes remaining thanks to goals from Karl-Heinze Rummenigge and Rudi Voller. With the Germans now in the ascendancy, Jorge Burruchaga stunned the Estadio Azteca with a late winning goal to make Argentina World Champions for the second time in their history.
