Manuel Negrete's wonder goal in Mexico '86

I can't believe that this hasn't been featured on Pies before as it is my favourite goal ever. Mexico '86 was my first World Cup proper, and the first goal to make my eyes pop out was this wonderful strike by Mexico's Manuel Negrete. A sublime volley that is rewarded with Negrete's hair being pulled and his head being slapped by his team-mates. That's gratitude for you.
