A typical example supporting the belief held by many that 2:0 is the most dangerous lead in football. When Jose Luis Brown won the World Cup on 29 June 1986, his team almost fell to the same danger after leading West Germany 2:0. It was only Maradona's brilliance which saved Argentina that day.

"I came to this press conference out of respect for the media, but to be honest I feel like crawling into a hole. It's a crushing disappointment, because we came to Nigeria with the intention of going all the way. We definitely weren't expecting to be going home so soon." Jose Luis Brown, Argentina coach
