It might surprise you to know that Diego Maradona played in four World Cup tournaments. 

A man so synonymous with the 1986 tournament - the highest that perhaps any footballer had ever risen - Maradona almost single-handedly (no pun intended) dragged his nation to their second-ever world title. 

Eight years later, we were to witness the fall; his eyes bulging in celebration, running towards a camera at USA '94. Of course, he was to come back as manager of his nation and lead them at the 2010 World Cup, too.

The icon played in 21 World Cup matches. He's most famous - on these shores, at least - for one in particular. But can you name the other 20?

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
