Bobby Robson & 'The Hand of a Rascal'

Matt Schudel

Fans of British soccer are mourning the death of Sir Bobby Robson, who played in the World Cup in 1958 and coached the British national team to an excellent run in the 1986 World Cup.

His British team was finally undone in the 1986 quarterfinals by Argentina, whose star player Diego Maradona scored two of the most remarkable goals in World Cup history, including the infamous "Hand of God" goal.

"It wasn't the Hand of God," Mr. Robson said. "It was the hand of a rascal. God had nothing to do with it."

A nice interview of Robson can be found here.
