FIFA World CUP: Diego Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ ball goes under the hammer on November 16: Check DETAILS

  • On November 16, the ball will be auctioned.
  • It is expected to sell for between £2.5m. and £3m.
  • Right now referee Ali Bin Nasser owns the ball.

The game, now remembered as one of the most significant and contested matches in World Cup history, lasted the full 90 minutes with the ball in play. Maradona scored the first goal of the game by beating the ball past England goalkeeper Peter Shilton.

The player afterwards referred to the goal as being “a bit with Maradona’s head and a bit with the hand of God” when Bin Nasser did not notice the handball and let it stand.

The second goal Maradona scored in the match, which he scored by dribbling past five England outfield players and slotting past Shilton, has been remembered as the “goal of the century”.

The ball is sold by the Tunisian referee Ali Bin Nasser, who refereed the match. “This ball is part of international football history – it feels like the right time to share it with the world,” Bin Nasser said. “I hope the buyer is able to display it or share it with the public in some other way.”

Bidders can register and submit online bids beginning October 28. The auction, which will be conducted by auctioneer Graham Budd, will take place on November 16 as part of a special World Cup event.

According to Graham Budd, chairman of Graham Budd Auctions, “The timing of the match, the history between the two teams and the handball have all led to this match becoming one of the most famous and emotional matches in football history.”

At recent auctions, a number of sports memorabilia set new records. A world record price of $9.3 million was paid in May for the jersey Maradona wore during the quarterfinals in 1986. A world record for any “game-worn” sports memorabilia was set in September when Michael Jordan’s 1998 NBA Finals jersey sold for 10.1 dollar.
