hahahah It would be just what England needs to get the passion into the game, but there may be too much passion off the field in the end.
that is a good one. Maradona has a lot of people on his hit list, Pele and including all the German fans is the latest.
He hates England:
Diego Maradona lit the fuse on an Auld Enemy feud last night - as Argentina's new manager claimed England should never have won the World Cup.
The little South American genius was holding court in Glasgow ahead of Wednesday night's meeting with Scotland at Hampden and responded to Terry Butcher's lingering frustration over the World Cup quarter-final 'Hand of God' incident in 1986 that sent England crashing out of the tournament.
The mischievous Maradona pointedly told Butcher to let the matter rest and then further goaded the former England skipper and now Scotland assistant boss by insisting Geoff Hurst's 'goal' against Germany at Wembley in 1966 didn't cross the line.
Crossing the line? New Argentina coach Diego Maradona has made the shocking accusation that England should never have won the 1966 World Cup
A Russian linesman famously gave the decision to present Sir Alf Ramsay's side with a 3-2 extra-time lead over the Germans, but Maradona even gestured yesterday that the ball failed to cross the line by a couple of feet.
It was pure cabaret from the squat former cocaine addict who, when asked if he could understand Butcher's frustration, said: 'I would say to you: England won the World Cup with a goal that, it is plain to see, did not cross the line.
'So I don't think they should judge me. Did they not have action replays in 1966? It was this much not over the line,' he gestured.
Butcher has admitted that he may not feel inclined to bury the hatchet and shake hands with Maradona ahead of tonight's meeting, or at full-time. But it was made clear yesterday that the Argentina boss will not be going out of his way to kiss and make-up, refusing to offer the semblance of a belated apology for his Mexico deception.
Clear goal (not from this angle): Geoff Hurst's Wembley strike has entered World Cup folklore - and helped to ensure England won the Jules Rimet trophy
'I won't seek him out,' when asked about a possible handshake with Butcher. 'I just try to make my own people happy. I do not know why he has taken this attitude. I do not understand Terry Butcher's attitude.
'I will get on with my life and he can get on with his. I will not lose any sleep over it. If he does not shake my hand, then I will still sleep on Wednesday night.'
Finest hour: But according to Maradona, this should never have happened
