I'm in stitches.

Henry, don't resort to childish insults. Or at least use a better insult than "buffoon".

E-Game actually made someone other than himself laugh. And is allowed to act like a childish gimp throughout the entire thread without being reprimanded.

Screw that, I'll post what I want.

1) Genius? Two Argentina players to pass too and one German player between them... I saw Downing cross the ball into the box once and a player headed it, GENIUS!

2) It was a big game. As was the final four years later. Both games he was quiet. You can't have a go at Messi for being quite in the big games when Maradonna wasn't Ronaldoesque in his big games either.

3) In my OP I said his only two good performances during that whole WC was against two European teams. I refer to England and Belgium. 4 of his goals came in these two games. They were the two games that got Maradonna the reputation he has today. Also as I said weak opposition. You can't have a go at Messi for scoring 90 goals in a 'weak' league then praise Maradonna for doing well in one of the weakest WC tournaments there has ever been.

La Liga isn't a weak league at all. Look at their European performances last season.

Bilbao dominated the best team in England twice and they aren't even top 8 in La Liga.

The depth in that league is better than most give it credit for.

That is truly a hall of shame post.

1.) It was in a world cup final! Downing wouldn't touch the ball in a world cup final so way to make a stupid comparison.

2.) The finesse with which he found the gap was simply exsquisite. It wan an inch perfect pass at at incredibly important stage of the game. Genius is what talent finds hard. Most talented players would have found it hard to be so composed in that moment.

3.) His legacy came from two games did it? Great research. Type Maradona and Napoli into google and you might be surprised at what you discover.

4.) There is no such thing as a weak world cup. Every international tournament is played under immense pressure, you have the eyes of the world watching you and you only have a few games in which everything has to click. You're comparing a bankrupt La Liga to a world cup tournament. Have you completely lost your senses?

Brazil didn't have to defeat too many great teams in 02 but it takes nothing away from how Ronaldo was able to perform in that environment.

First and last time Downing will ever have been mentioned in a conversation about Maradona I'd imagine

No we're all waiting for that iconic moment when it's 2-2 in the world cup final and England bring on Downing who perfectly controls the ball in the air and sends a soaring, accurate long pass at an absolutely perfect pace to set up the tournament winning goal.

Problem is, that England won't get to a world cup final and if they did Downing wouldn't play

5 goals and 5 assists in 7 world cup games is impressive but could he do that on a cold rainy Tuesday nights 7 times in a row against Stoke in the Brittainia Stadium?

You would need an all time World XI to face those odds.



The only other assist that compares is Bergkamp's magic vs Juventus but given that this took place in a World Cup Final at 2-2 in the last ten minutes of the game I'm going to go out on a limb and call it the GOAT assist.
