Argentina World Cup Final 1986 Winners Medal – Mexico 1986

Argentina World Cup Final Winners Medal 1986

Rare repro medal from the World Cup Final in Mexico 1986 when Argentina beat West Germany 3-2 at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City on the 29th of June 1986

José Luis Brown opened the scoring for Argentina in the 23rd minute with a header after a free-kick from the right and it stayed at 1–0 until half-time. 10 minutes into the second half, Jorge Valdano doubled Argentina's lead with a low side foot finish after cutting in from the left past the advancing goalkeeper. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge pulled a goal back in the 74th minute from close range for West Germany, his first goal in the tournament. West Germany then equalised in the 83rd minute, with Rudi Völler scoring with a header from close range to seemingly salvage the game. Although Diego Maradona was heavily marked by Lothar Matthäus the entire game, his superb pass to Jorge Burruchaga in the 86th minute allowed Argentina to regain the lead at 3–2 when he slid the ball past the advancing goalkeeper from the right and into the corner of the net.

Six yellow cards were issued in this match, which was a record number until the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final. Two of them were issued because of time wasting from Argentine players. As the clock expired, Argentina celebrated their second World Cup victory in three tournaments after having won the 1978 World Cup on home soil.

Rare medal as received by Diego Maradona the Worlds greatest ever player in possibly the greatest World Cup of all time
