Replays showed that Maradona had used his hand to punch the ball into the net, but the goal was allowed to stand. Maradona later described the goal as the “Hand of God,” and it remains one of the most talked-about moments in the sport.

2. Zinedine Zidane’s headbutt (2006): In the 2006 World Cup final between France and Italy, French star Zinedine Zidane shocked the world by headbutting Italian defender Marco Materazzi in the chest. Zidane was sent off, and France went on to lose the match on penalties. The incident marred what was an otherwise stellar career for Zidane, and it is a moment that will always be remembered in football history.

3. Sergio Aguero’s last-minute goal (2012): In the final moments of the 2011-2012 English Premier League season, Manchester City needed a win against QPR to secure their first league title in 44 years. With the score tied at 2-2, Sergio Aguero scored a dramatic last-minute goal to secure a 3-2 victory and clinch the title for City. The moment is etched into the memories of City fans forever and is considered one of the greatest moments in Premier League history.

4. Liverpool’s Champions League comeback (2005): In the 2005 Champions League final, Liverpool found themselves trailing 3-0 to AC Milan at halftime.

The comeback is widely regarded as one of the greatest in Champions League history and will be remembered by football fans for generations to come.

5. Maradona’s ‘Goal of the Century’ (1986): In the same World Cup match against England as the ‘Hand of God’ goal, Maradona also scored what is considered one of the greatest goals in football history.

The goal has been dubbed the ‘Goal of the Century’ and is often cited as the best goal ever scored in a World Cup match.
