  1. Sorry, I can not agree, the World Cup 86 He left us many unforgettable games in history that all who saw him remember, I guess the majority who voted did not see it, that's why they voted for the 94.
    There was a 6-0 from Denmark to unforgettable Uruguay, Spain's victory against that Denmark in Querétaro, the indomitable lions of Morocco almost bending England, Maradona passing over the English and Belgians, a game with overtime and penalties from Brazil and France in quarters almost as good as Germany-Italy's 70 and Germany-France the 82 that was repeated in this same world in the semifinals.
    And Germany's incredible comeback in the final to end Valdano's goal, I'm sorry but matches like that were not seen in the 94 however much Stoichkov's Bulgaria or Larsson's Sweden shone.
    To show this question, how can a team finish a zero tie in a final with a lead with Bebeto and Romario??, I have nothing more to add, Your Honor.….

    1. I am in favor of 86, I am in favor of, I am in favor of 6 0 I am in favor of, 6 1. I am in favor of, I am in favor of, I am in favor of, I am in favor of, I am in favor of 94!

  2. Nooo, by far the best World Cup was Mexico 86…!! WITH large selections…!!! WITH top world figures in each team van vasten.gulit.platini rumenigge matheus. The Mexican does not remember the name of the Brazilian team.. Paolo rossi and his Italian team that was ... and then Italy's 90. even the song is the best
