The unprecedented images of Maradona’s favorite goal

Diego Maradona considered it the most beautiful goal of his career, even ahead of the legendary goal against England in Mexico in 1986. A few years ago a video of that goal appeared, but the black and white images and very low quality made it almost necessary to guess. the movements of the star. However, thanks to special digitization work, you can now enjoy the color images of the goal that Maradona scored against Deportivo Pereira of Colombia in a friendly match played in 1980.

“We were losing and we came back from a game 3-3 and then we won 4-3 with that goal. It was from the middle of the field, they threw everything at me, flying kicks… and of course when they threw me I was puncturing the ball and they were left on the floor, in the photo is when I push it, I pass to the goalkeeper and they are all thrown In line”described Maradona in an interview in 2006 for the TyC Sports program Sin Cassette, when he was asked about the most beautiful goal of his career.

The meeting in question was on February 19, 1980, on a tour of Argentinos Juniors in Colombia. For years, the goal was not recorded on film, until that black and white video appeared in 2013 showing a move similar to that of Maradona against Belgium, with the difference that he eluded the goalkeeper against Pereira while against the Belgians He shot across the far post before goalkeeper Pfaff left.

Now, thanks to the Maradona Inédito Twitter account, which spread it on the 43rd anniversary of the event, the goal is appreciated in an unbeatable way. “It seemed crazy to think of coloring and restoring almost 900 frames manually, but with patience and perseverance it took shape. And it’s still not finished,” said Damián Emilio Carrillo, who was in charge of digitizing the images for three months. Now, thanks to technological advances, Carrillo’s goldsmith work and the dissemination of Maradona Inédito, all that remains is to enjoy another unparalleled genius of Diego.
