Maradona’s ‘hand of God’ shirt auctioned for $8.4 million
London, May 4 (EFE).- The iconic Argentina shirt that Diego Maradona was wearing when he scored the infamous ‘hand of God’ goal to knock England out of the 1986 Fifa World Cup has been auctioned for 7.1 million pounds ($8.4 million).
The shirt posted a new record most expensive football item sold in a Sotheby’s auction, breaking the previous benchmark set by the 1892 Olympic manifesto, which was auctioned for $8.8 million.
Steve Hodge, the former England player whose flick inadvertently set up the goal, swapped his shirt with Maradona after the game.
The buyer of the shirt has not been revealed. EFE
