Pele was recognized as the best footballer of all time until 1980 and later in 1990. Both are World Cup-winning footballers. Maradona got a chance in the Argentina national team in 1977. But due to his young age, he did not get a chance to play the World Cup at home in 1978.
Argentina became the world champion of service under the leadership of Daniel Passarella. Despite not getting a chance in ’78, Maradona played four World Cups in 1982, 1986, 1990, and 1994 in an azure-white jersey of Argentina. Spain made its World Cup debut in ’82. At the age of 22, he turned his attention to himself.
But Argentina could not pass the group stage. Mexico World Cup in 1986 saw the football world a new football magician. Become immortal in that room. In his football magic, Argentina won the World Cup for the second time. Not only the world champion, but he also scored five goals.
His two goals against England set him apart in the golden pages of history. One of whose goals was controversial. The goal, which he called “Hands of God”, has been widely criticized by England football fans. The second goal was declared by FIFA as the best goal of the century.
The way Maradona scored the goal by cutting five England footballers with the ball from their boundary is possible only in imagination! This football artist became immortal with that one goal. After Maradona’s magical football, World Cup football became popular in Bangladesh.
Argentina also reached the final of the 1990 World Cup in Italy. But Maradona did not win the World Cup in a row due to the bad refereeing of the Mexican referee. The way Maradona cried like a child after the defeat in the final, his tears have touched the hearts of football fans. He also played in the 1994 World Cup in the United States.
But banned for drugs. The football magician officially bid farewell to the national team in 1997. In his 20-year international football career, the football legend has scored 34 goals in 91 matches. He has scored 8 goals in 21 matches in four World Cups.
At the end of his football career, he chose to coach as his profession. For the first time in 2008, Argentina took part in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. But after a poor performance, the country’s football federation canceled his contract with him. His career in club football is as colorful as the national team.
He played for world-famous clubs in Napoli, Barcelona. The Argentine Football Federation tweeted: “Argentine Football Association President Claudio Tapia is deeply saddened by the death of our legend Diego Maradona. You will always be in our hearts. ‘
