Diego Maradona inducted into Goal Hall of Fame

The former Argentina star is the third of five legendary names to be recognised in the Class of 2014 this week
Diego Maradona has been named as the third inductee to the Goal Hall of Fame.

The iconic attacker represented Argentina 91 times between 1977 and 1994 and famously led them to World Cup glory in 1986, winning the Golden Ball at the tournament in Mexico.

The peak form of his brilliant club career came during his seven-year stay with Napoli, for whom he scored 115 goals and helped the club to win their first-ever Serie A titles in 1986-87 and 1989-90 as well as the Uefa Cup in 1989.

Goal's worldwide team of experts produced a shortlist of 15 names for our first batch of inductees and we asked you, the readers, to pick which legends should be included.

Over 100,000 of you from all over the world voted and the Goal Hall of Fame opens its doors this week, with two more icons set to be recognised along with Maradona and previous entrants Zinedine Zidane and Pele.

We have exclusive interviews, features, galleries and videos celebrating the careers of our top five. You can also share your thoughts throughout the week on social media using the Hashtag #GoalHOF.
