Was he as good as Harry Kane?

Some of the bitterness and vitriol in this thread is quite astonishing.

Maradona was undoubtedly one of the greatest footballers ever. Anyone who says otherwise has clearly not watched very much of what he did on the pitch.

He was also a very flawed person off of the pitch, at least as far as his use of drugs goes. 

That really shouldn't take too much away from some of the great things he did on the pitch, and also off of it for charities and the like.

It seems like the bitterness is focussed on one handball in a World Cup match...So many players have deliberately handled the ball in major matches, or deliberately chopped down an opposing player (Maradona suffered a LOT from that in his career). I wonder if the same comments will be made about those players when their time comes? Or am I misreading things and the "cheat" comments are just about his drug use? :rolleyes:

At that time, he would have got a yellow at worst for handling the ball if it had been spotted by the officials.

Spoken like a true Scotsman about the English. :D

Nah, just a neutral observer :unsure::rofl:

I'm assuming that everyone that has ranted about Maradona's cheating in 86 would also be just as vocal about Owen's in 98 :D

Only difference - Diego Maradona is acclaimed worldwide. Not the case for Harry Kane and Jimmy Greaves.

What did Owen do? Is it on YouTube?

Apparently the Handball incident has been reviewed by VAR and a penalty has been awarded to Man Utd.
