http://www.goalmaniac.com - Diego Armando Maradona is one of the greatest footballer of all time. He was born on October 30, 1960, in Villa Fiorito, a poor province of Buenos Aires. His first team was called Estrella Roja (Red Star) and was coached by his father. Carrizo, a Maradonas friend helped Diego to be obtain a test into Argentinos Juniors. He played in the club five seasons, playing 166 games and scoring 115 goals. In 1981 he signed for the biggest club in Argentine, Boca Juniors, for the princely sum, at the time, of £1 million. But he played there only one year, in fact he signed for Barcelona the following year. Anyway his performances in Spain didnt get on too well there especially for a bout of hepatitis and for a serious injury for a crazy tackle by defender Andoni Goikoetxea. In 1984 he transfer to Napoli in Italian Serie A where he reached the best successes of his career. He won two Serie A (1987,1990), Italy Cup (1987), a UEFA Cup (1989), an Italian Super Cup(1990). In 1991 he had a prohibition of 15 months, for failing drugs controls during a match against Bari. This episode can be considered the end of the career of Maradona. Maradona is maybe more famous for playing for Argentine than for a club team: in 1986 he captained his country in every game until the final won 3-2 against West Germany. Memorable the match against England where he scored two goals: the first one was very questioned by the famous hand-touch later called "La Mano de Dios" (God's Hand) where Maradona used his hand to score, while the second goal is considered the goal of the century. Diego took the ball behind the midfield line and with 11 touches he avoided all the English players who were trying to stop him: Glenn Hoddle, Peter Reid, Kenny Sansom, Terry Butcher, Terry Fenwick and goalkeeper Peter Shilton. A stunning goal.
