World Cup 1986: When Maradona lit up the world of football

 Mexico became the first country to host the FIFA World Cup for the second time. Previously, in 1970, Mexico hosted it for the first time. Initially, Colombia was designated as the host of the World Cup, but he withdrew the name citing financial reasons.

After that, Canada, America and Mexico claimed to host the World Cup. FIFA appointed Mexico as the host.

The number of teams competing in the qualifiers for the World Cup increased to 121 after the worldwide discussion of the World Cup. Africa and Asia were given two quotas each. There were 14 quotas from Europe and 4 quotas from America.

Canada, Denmark and Iraq made their debut in the World Cup from Mexico.

Maradona, 25, captained Argentina to the World Cup and played every minute. He also scored 5 goals and 5 assists.

Denmark made a brilliant debut and won all the matches in the group stage. However, they lost to Spain in the second round and were eliminated. Former champion Italy was eliminated in the second round after being defeated by France.

France, Belgium and West Germany won the penalty shootout and reached the semi-finals. The quarter-final between Argentina and England ended in regular time. This game was exciting.

Maradona scored the first goal with his hand which was like a header. Later it was called Hand of God.

The second goal became the FIFA website Goal of the Century in 2002. Maradona advanced the ball from the middle of the field, tricked five players of England and also beat the goalkeeper.

The match took place in 1982 after the Falkland War between the two nations.

Argentina won the title by defeating West Germany in the final. At first, Argentina scored two goals. But Germany made a comeback.

However, with 6 minutes left in the game, Jorge Luis Burchaga scored a pass from Maradona and Argentina won the World Cup for the second time with a 3-2 win.

The best moment of this World Cup was Maradona's impressive performance. Similarly, the debut of Canada, Denmark and Iran also became a remarkable aspect. The Mexican wave also started with this World Cup. However, the controversy over the selection of the host was also discussed.

World Cup 1982: 24 teams for the first time, forgettable for Argentina

 In 1982, FIFA increased the number of participating teams from 16 to 24. When Spain got the hosting rights for the first time, World Cup matches were held in 17 stadiums in 14 cities.

Four years ago, Argentina won its first World Cup title at home. They trusted the young superstar Maradona. However, the Argentine team could not pass the group stage.

In this World Cup, Brazil presented a model of aggressive football. Their star players, Zico, Falcao and Socrates, performed brilliantly. However, they failed to reach the semi-finals after losing to Italy.

Algeria, which qualified for the World Cup for the first time, was able to achieve its biggest success by defeating the then Euro champion West Germany. Algeria also won 3-2 over Chile and West Germany won a very controversial victory over Australia, but Algeria did not reach the second round.

If West Germany wins by one or two goals, both teams will advance to the second round. The former world champion Germany took the lead in the tenth minute. Since then, both teams did not attempt to attack throughout the match. Even in the World Cup, that game is considered as an unannounced match.

Apart from Algeria, Cameroon, Honduras, Kuwait and New Zealand also had the opportunity to participate in the competition for the first time. Despite accusations of bias from the official, the host Spain could not advance from the first round.

Former champions Italy and West Germany faced each other in the final. Paulo Rossi scored his sixth goal in the World Cup and gave Italy the World Cup title for the third time. Besides Rossi, Marco Tardelli and Alessandro Altobelli also scored in the final. Paul Breitner scored a consolation goal for Germany in the 83rd minute.

Since this World Cup, the penalty shootout has started to separate the winner from the result of a draw. A penalty was awarded after extra time. Hungary's 10-1 victory over El Salvador is the widest result in World Cup history.

Because of the Falklands war, the British countries had warned of boycott. However, they decided to participate at the last moment.

World Cup 1974: When the Netherlands replaced the Brazilian style with Total Football

West Germany hosted the World Cup for the first time. In 1972, in view of the Munich terror attack at the Olympics, a large security arrangement was made.

The 1974 World Cup was held in 9 cities in West Germany, including West Berlin.

Teams like England, Spain, Mexico and Portugal could not pass the long selection process. East Germany played the World Cup only once, while Australia, Haiti, Zaire (currently the Dominican Republic of Congo) qualified for the first time.

Brazil's golden generation left its mark on the world stage for a long time. They had their own samba style of football and played as a legend.

Brazil's 1974 team played a different brand of football and the Netherlands succeeded in replacing Brazil in crowd-pleasing fashion. Under the leadership of Johan Cruyff, the Dutch team used 'total football'. Where every outfield player could take any role apart from his position.

The Netherlands were undefeated until the final. In the final, they competed against former European champions and host West Germany.

With no German player touching the ball, Cruyff won a penalty in the first minute and scored to give the Netherlands the lead.

In the 25th minute, Germany equalized through a penalty. Gerd Müller scored before the first half and that goal was enough to give Germany the World Cup for the second time.

In this World Cup, the 'Total Football' style of the Netherlands captivated the audience.

A new World Cup trophy was created. 18 carat gold was used in the FIFA World Cup trophy.

Oceania and Sub-Saharan Africa were represented in the World Cup for the first time by this edition. East and West Germany played against each other in the group stage. East Germany won the match 1-0.

It was the last World Cup for Dutch great Johan Cruyff and Germany's Gerd Muller.
