# I am Maradona #

“I am Maradona, who shoot goals, who make mistakes. I can take it all, I have shoulders big enough to fight with everybody.”

Maradona in now in God’s hand. Yes, Deigo Armando Maradona, who became one of the greatest players with his intelligent plays and extravagant control. Maradona died on 25th Nov, 2020 at the age of 60.

Brazilian soccer legend Pele tweeted… “I lost a Great friend and the world lost a legend ….One day, I hope we can play ball together in the sky…”

Maradona is one of the reason for me to really follow football. I watched the world cup 1986 on television even at late night hours, just to watch him.play in the 1986 world cup.

Maradona, who played for Barcelona, was also the captain of the national team when Argentina won the 1986 world cup, scoring the famous “Hand of God” goal against England in the quarter-finals. To score the goal, Maradona used his hand to deflect the ball past England goal keeper Peter Shilton, but the referee did not see it. It remains one of the most controversial World cup moments.

As he settles down in heaven, the one wish of every football fan would be that gatekeeper of the afterlife welcome Deigo with a football. That is the only way he will be at peace with himself, for that is the only thing he enjoyed in his 60 years in this world.

With deepest sympathy..

Rest in Peace

  1. Nice blog. One of the greatest footballer of all times who unfortunately became a cocaine addict. Went into rehabilitation several times but his drug addiction destroyed him.
