Thirty years ago on this day, Argentina lifted their second (and sadly so far last) World Cup as they defeated West Germany 3-2 in the final.
After taking a 2-0 lead through goals by José Luis BROWN and Jorge VALDANO, West Germany went level with two goals by RUMMENIGGE and VOLLER. But only 3 minutes after Germany drew level, Jorge BURRUCHAGA scored the goal of his life, the goal which would hand Argentina in their second World Cup title.
It’s already been 30 years and while we’ve come close once since 1986, Argentina has always had the talent to go on and win the tournament. Be it luck, pressure or anything else, we haven’t been able to lift football’s most prestigious trophy. But that doesn’t mean we should ever stop believing.
