We’re rounding off an eventful Group B by looking back at the demise of the Soviet Union and world champions Argentina scraping through to the knockout stages by the skin of their teeth in front of Diego Maradona’s adoring Neapolitan disciples. We also examine more closely the big news stories of what was a pretty momentous time to be alive, as well as considering how news coverage of football and the World Cup has changed since 1990.
