Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ Argentina shirt sells for £7.1million

    The sporting legend, then aged 25, scored two of football’s most famous goals to dump England out of the quarter finals.

    The first is infamously known as the “Hand of God goal”, as Maradona jumped with goalkeeper Peter Shilton and palmed the ball into England’s empty net.

    The second, which saw the Argentinian number 10 dribble from the halfway line through England’s defence, was voted Goal of the Century by FIFA.

    The previous highest fee paid for a shirt worn during a sports match was held by New York Yankees legend Babe Ruth’s baseball jersey, which sold for $5.6m (£4.4m) in 2019.
