Part 6 of 13 - South American Superpowers
This episode looks at the South American region and goes into great detail of its history. Maradona is focussed on and his role in the 1986 finals where he cheated by
handling the ball into the net, claiming it to be the “hand of God” and then later in the same game scoring one of the most memorable goals in World Cup history. It looks at the River Plate region of Argentina and the power clubs in that area along with Uruguay’s golden era. It also looks at Argentina’s isolation and the divide between Europe and South America. Colombia is looked at in detail along with an insight into the passion that is renowned in South America.
