The infamous ball used by Diego Maradona to score two of the most famous goals in football history is to go on auction for an estimated price of £2.5m to £3m.

The match ball was used in the famous 1986 World Cup quarter-final between England and Argentina, a match which remains one of the most defining and controversial contests in World Cup history.

Maradona scored the opener by punching the ball past England goalkeeper, Peter Shilton.

Bin Nasser did not spot the handball and allowed the goal to stand, with the player later describing it as being “a little with the head of Maradona and a little with the hand of God”.

WOW.
