IT may not be a time that we like to remember, but it was in 1986 that Argentina emerged as a World Cup power due to the skills of Maradona and, obviously, the Hand of God.

Until then Argentina had spent the previous decade under the shadow of a brutal dictatorship and had gone through the pains of being ejected from the Falklands.

The documentary, obviously, looks at the highs and lows of Argentina and the World Cup, but concentrates mostly on the success in Mexico in 1986 and the 3-2 defeat of West Germany.
