The Lost Golazo: Diego Maradona’s stunner (Argentinos Juniors) v Deportivo Pereira in 1980

A hidden Diego Maradona gem has emerged over the past few days showing a lost golazo from the legendary Argentinean’s scrapebook.

The black-and-white, grainy footage records a brilliant solo goal from a 1980 friendly in Colombia, when Diego was just 20-years-old, which is now being referenced as a more beautiful goal than the one he scored against England in ’86.

A young stocky Maradona can be made out on the snowy image weaving past player after player, including the keeper, before slapping the ball in the net. It’s quite brilliant.

Watch Diego Maradona’s lost golazo below.
