World Cup 1986

I loved the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. Maybe its because it was the first football tournament that caught my imagination.

Scotland were there and with a fair enough squad of mainly English first division players. King Kenny pulled out due to flu but we still had Strachan, Souness, MacAvennie, Sharp, Nicol etc and Alex Ferguson at the helm. In end, not surprisingly it was a disaster with close losses against Germany, Denmark and a poor 0-0 draw against a 10 man Uruguay sending us home before the postcards….again.

Diego Armando Maradona was in his pomp and prime scoring the best goal of time and one of the most controversial, both against the English.

My favourite game had to be France vs Brazil which went all the way to penalties. There was Schumachers dreadful tackle against France. An excellent final with the Argies edging the Germans 3-2.

All in all it was a magnificent tournament.
