Diego Armando Maradona was the uncontested protagonist of the 13th FIFA World Cup, held in Mexico. In the final, although he was heavily marked the entire game, a superb pass to Jorge Burruchaga allowed Argentina to regain the lead at 3–2 against West Germany.
A tribute to Francisco Goya's The Dog. I replace the dog with a portrait of my cat, here in one of those rare moments when he's not sleeping.
Here below the original artwork, one of the Black Paintings Goya painted directly onto the walls of his house sometime between 1819 and 1823.
The 1982 FIFA World Cup was held in Spain and was won by Italy, after defeating West Germany 3–1 in the final. Paolo Rossi, the tournament's top goalscorer, won the Golden Ball as the tournament's best player, but the most hard and significant goal of the final match was Marco Tardelli's, who scored from the edge of the area.
The 1978 World Cup was held in Argentina, causing controversy as a military coup had taken place in the country two years earlier. The hosts beat the Netherlands 3–1 after extra time. I illustrated the second personal goal of Mario Kempes, who passed over two defenders and beat the goalkeeper after a bounce.
