OriginEdit

Argentina v England, played on 22 June 1986, was a football match between Argentina and England in the quarterfinals of the 1986 FIFA World Cup at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. The game was held four years after the Falklands War between Argentina and the United Kingdom and was a key part in the already intense football rivalry between Argentina and England. It was also a match which included two of the most famous goals in football history, both scored by Diego Maradona. The first goal, after 51 minutes, was to become known as the "Hand of God", which Maradona scored by using his hand. His second, 4 minutes after his first, saw him dribble past five England players, Beardsley, Reid, Butcher, Fenwick, Butcher (again), and finally goalkeeper Peter Shilton. Argentina won the game 2–1 and went on to win the 1986 World Cup with a victory over West Germany in the final.

EffectsEdit

Anyone that kicks a soccer ball into the goal will experience very bad and disheartening fortunes. In the next event or challenge, one of their most intense rivals will controversially gain the upper hand. They will then immediately find a way to utterly crush the user’s hopes. This victory will only deepen the already existent hatred between the two groups.
