Buenos Aires, Argentina: Vroom, vroom, snarled the Mini, as the 'Hand of God' was at the wheel.
"What an ***hole you are," the mouth attached to the 'Hand of God' shouted from Gods' Mini. "How can you put your leg there where it can get run over, man?"
It was on the 22nd June 1986, that the Hand of God goal occurred, when the 'Hand of God' scored an illegal but unpenalised handball, in a football match between Argentina and England in the quarter-finals of the 1986 FIFA World Cup, at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City.
The England goalkeeper came out of his goal to punch the ball clear, with his considerable height at 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m), making him clear favourite to beat the 'Hand of God' at 5 ft 5 in (1.65 m) to it. However, the 'Hand of God' reached it first, with the outside of his left fist. The ball went into the goal, and the Tunisian Referee not having seen the infringement, allowed the goal.
The 'Hand of God' later said, "I was waiting for my teammates to embrace me, and no one came... I told them, 'Come hug me, or the referee isn't going to allow it.'"
A photograph, published after the game, gave a clear view of the "Hand of God" incident. At the post-game press conference, the 'Hand of God' claimed that the goal was scored a little with the head of the 'Hand of God' and a little with the hand of God coining the phrase "Hand of God". Video and photographic evidence demonstrated that the 'Hand of God' had struck the ball with his hand, which was shown on television networks and in newspapers all over the world, with England Manager stating instead that it was 'the hand of a rascal..'
Recently the head of the 'Hand of God' has been bitten by the 'Hand of Gods' dog, requiring minor facial surgery. This has disrupted the 'Hand of God's World Cup preparation.
Driving a Mini to a news conference, the 1986 World Cup winner, the 'Hand of God' was surrounded by newsmen but one was hit and he fell to the ground. Paramedics ran to the scene to attend to the cameraman who was taken away for further treatment.
The 'Hand of God' formally announced his 23-man World Cup Argentinian squad for South Africa, however the announcement turned into a farce after the coach ran over the cameraman.
