    It would be unfair to say Argentina were a one man team when they won the World Cup in 1986, but they would not have got remotely close to doing so without Maradona, so they were the closest thing to a one man team to win a major international competition and that's the main reason Diego Maradona is the greatest player I've seen.

    RIP

    Spot on Bob. To a lesser degree, see Napoli as well. The man was a genius and had the character to drag mere mortals with him. That's the difference between him and another Argentinian genius.

    Would you say the same about Ronaldo winning the Euros with Portugal Bob?

    No, my admiration for Ronaldo has grown as he's got older, but I think Portugal had a very good defence and they played ninety five minutes of the Final without him.

    Maradona was the most cheated against footballer in the history of the game. Do some research, sludge.

    I would , for me his ability is astonishing and a better role model for youngsters to follow than Maradona , has done it for his country , and in so many leagues and for so long ,his dedication his game and fitness is some record.

    Part of the legend status around Maradona was his complex life and wild behaviour .

    They keep showing the goals v England. Remember watching the game live. After the 1st goal it was as if he thought hed better score another.

    The ball is bobbing up on an uneven surface an incredible goal and he was superb all tournament.

    86 was all about Maradona. Ive never seen anything like that since and dont think an individuals impact on a tournament will ever match it.

    But yes Ronaldo is a better role model.

    Nowhere near as good as a player and he himself is a great player.

    Which undoubtedly contributed to his on field issues. Being injected with cortisone every match couldn’t have helped his lifestyle.
