World Cup 1986 - Day Three

Monday 2 June 1986

Three games today as we finally got into the action, although limited for TV viewers.

Two games at 7pm but BBC only showed the second half of one and the highlights of the other.

Argentina, led by the enigmatic Diego Maradona (of whom we might hear more!) were many people's favourites for the cup, and made a confident start putting away South Korea. BBC viewers would have just started to watch as the third goal went in. Meanwhile the Soviet Union absolutely demolished Hungary.

For the late 11pm kick off England viewers might have watched the ITV live coverage of two teams in the group, Morocco and Poland - but they would not have seen much in a goalless draw.

Argentina 3 South Korea 1
Valdano 6, 46, Ruggeri 18 - Park Chang-Sun 73
