Maradona's hand goal against England in the 1986 World Cup

Maradona's hand goal against England in the 1986 World Cup  The referee of the Argentina-England match in the 1986 World Cup disavows Maradona's goal by hand, What does the football law say?  The former Tunisian referee Ali Bennacer, who managed the famous match between Argentina and England in the FIFA World Cup in Mexico in 1986, and awarded a goal to the late star Diego Maradona from a handball that sparked controversy to this day, confirmed that; He is not responsible for calculating the incorrect target.  Bin Nasser said in statements on the "beinsports" TV channel, "When Maradona's ball shook the net, I suspected that the goal was incorrect, so I immediately looked at the referee and he was of Bulgarian nationality while I was on my way back to the middle of the field. The middle circle is in recognition of the validity of the goal, so I immediately took his opinion."  Bin Nasser explained that in the eighties of the last century, specifically in the 1986 World Cup, there was no specialization of assistant referee, and the 36 referees selected from all over the world were at the same level and were candidates to manage all matches as referees for the arena, and then they were appointed to the banner or a fourth referee.  He added that the instructions were clear and strict from the International Football Association Board (FIFA) that if the referee of the arena finds his colleague in a better position than him in vision, he takes his opinion directly and compulsorily.  Bin Nasser continued, "Despite the error of Maradona's goal, I completed the match in the best way, and contributed technically to the second goal. When you referee a match for Maradona, you cannot close your eyes, because the defenders tried to bring him down more than once, but I gave him the opportunity to be able to shake The net and scoring the second goal in the goal, which became the best goal in the history of the World Cup, and was chosen as the goal of the century.”  Bin Nasser indicated that "the England coach after the match blamed the referee of the flag and confirmed that this is his role, and not on me personally as a referee for the arena, and I managed the match in the best way and got a rating of 9.4 in this match, after I applied the law throughout the match, even in Maradona's shot. I handled the situation as it should be, by applying FIFA's instructions."  What does the football law say? Indeed, the lack of specialization in refereeing was a major weakness, as almost all referees focus and want to manage matches as a referee for the field, and neglect the important role of the assistant referee. FIFA, the continental federations and Al-Ahly contributed to this by the lack of refinement of the assistants, who were called in these days “the man of the line”, in a clear reduction of their status, and this resulted in meager levels and flagrant errors even in the largest World Cup tournaments.  Unfortunately, the negligence in polishing extended to the referees as well, and the physical fitness was modest, which negatively affected their follow-up to the ball, and this was the main reason for Ben Nasser’s mistake and not seeing the “clear” hand touch, and calculating the goal, although Maradona raised his hand high to play the ball, and it can be noted The extent of Ben Nasser's distance from Maradona's violation because he did not start with the attack and enter the penalty area, but was more than 20 meters away.  Despite his distance, he could see Maradona's hand raised above his head better than the second assistant, who clearly did not focus either in the exciting refereeing situation, but the best position to see the violation was by advancing into the penalty area at the same moment Maradona played the ball with his hand, which is what the referees do Currently, since the 1994 World Cup in America, which began assigning referees to the arena and others as assistants.  England goalkeeper Peter Shilton commented on the goal, saying, "Maradona was very smart because he moved his head at the same time as the handball. He was a great player but he had no sportsmanship because he never apologized for his infamous goal in the 1986 World Cup."  Maradona kisses Ben Nasser's hand Bin Nasser continued his speech, saying, "I had a meeting with Maradona in Tunisia... after he asked to visit me, and I received him at my home with Arab generosity and the usual hospitality for us."  The famous Tunisian referee confirmed, "I discovered through this visit that Maradona was a skilled player in the field, and not only that. He is outside the stadium, a social, humble person with high morals, and it was a great honor for me to receive him in my home."  Bin Nasser added, "We talked about the incident of scoring the goal with his hand, and when the audience asked him during the meeting why you scored the goal with your hand despite your great talent and your lack of any aids to score, he simply replied: I wanted to defeat the English in every way... Then he raised my hand. And he kissed her."  Bin Nasser hinted, "I started arbitration in 1966, and the tournament was being held in England, and I watched a match between England and Argentina on television and witnessed many problems, and I said to myself at that time if these problems occur at the global level, how will I deal with the matter? And after 20 years, the assignment was given A match between Argentina and England for me as an international referee in the World Cup, and the match remained a historical and a memory, and witnessed two goals that people are talking about so far.”  Bin Nasser expressed his wishes for success to all Arab referees participating in the management of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.  On the other hand, bin Nasser praised Qatar's preparations to host the World Cup event for the first time in the Middle East, saying, "As an Arab, I am honored with my head held high in Qatar's organization of the tournament. We are proud of Qatar and the great work it has done since winning the organization of the tournament 12 years ago, and we trust in Its ability to host the tournament in the best way, and its technical, organizational and public success as well.”  Former international referee
