1:0 Jose Brown (21.) 2:0 Jorge Valdano (55.) 2:1 Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (73.) 2:2 Rudi Völler (81.) 3:2 Jorge Burruchaga (84.) The 1986 World Cup Final was the final and deciding game of the 1986 World Cup, held in Mexico. The match was held at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City on 29 June 1986 and had an attendance of 114600. It was contested by Argentina and West Germany. Argentina won the match 32 in normal time. Jose Luis Brown opened the scoring for Argentina in the 23rd minute and it stayed at 10 until half-time. After the break, Jorge Valdano doubled Argentina’s lead. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge pulled a goal back in the 74th minute for West Germany and they equalised in the 80th minute; future Germany manager Rudi Völler scoring to seemingly salvage the game. However just 3 minutes later Jorge Burruchaga allowed Argentina to regain the lead at 32, this was how it remained and Argentina were able to celebrate their second world-cup victory in three tournaments (after winning the 1978 World Cup). www.wikipedia.org
