Playing in the same competition (World Cup)
against the same team (Bulgaria)
at the exact same age (25 years old)
Pelé (1966) & Maradona (1986)
with arguably the worst Brazilian team ever, Pelé had to activate his individual skills to inspire his team, but he ended up being injured and he did not play the second game!
In the other hand, Maradona enjoyed to play every minute in the competition leading the great team of Argentina to win their second World Cup in only 8 years.
