The Argentina jersey that Diego Maradona wore when he scored the controversial ‘hand of God’ goal against England in the 1986 World Cup is up for sale at an auction.
The iconic blue jersey is estimated to fetch more than £4 million ($5.25 million) at auction.
Maradona scored two historic goals while wearing the shirt during the 1986 quarter-final game in Mexico.
The late legend put in a masterclass performance as he led his side to the semi-finals of the competition with a 2-1 win against the Three Lions in Mexico.
Maradona scored what is regarded as the “goal of the century” as he ran through the England team before slotting into the net, but his other goal caught attention for all the wrong reasons as he used his hand to beat Peter Shilton to the ball and send it into the net.
The shirt the Argentina icon was wearing in that clash is now set to go to auction later this month and England and former Three Lions midfielder Steve Hodge is the man consigning the shirt for auction.
Hodge has been in the possession of former England midfielder Steve Hodge, who exchanged shirts with Maradona after the encounter.
Meanwhile, Maradona’s eldest daughter has made a stunning revelation, claiming the shirt is not the one her father was wearing when he scored the infamous goal.
The late soccer icon’s life was trailed with controversies until his death two years ago, with many linking his demise to drug addiction.
