The Blizzard: Romania 3-2 Argentina, 1994

On today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard, we look back on perhaps the most enjoyable game of the 1994 World Cup, alongside the New York Times’ Rory Smith! 


Despite the fallout from Diego Maradona’s drug ban casting a shadow over their tournament, this enviable Argentina team and cohort of Romanian superstars were probably the tournament’s two best sides. We revel in the chaotic game that unfolded between them, featuring cracking goals from Eastern European football royalty and technical quality that belied the sweltering heat in Pasadena.
