The most fans of Diego Armando Maradona still do not conceive the game of 10, who passed away on November 25 at the age of 60. For this very reason, and for all that the Cosmic Keg generates, in Argentina they are going crazy with an unpublished video of the world champion… with Lionel Messi.
In the images you can see Maradona receiving and delivering the ball to Messi in the middle of a pre-competitive work during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. At first glance it does not have much relevance, but history marks at the moment 10 next to 10, an image that every fan of the Argentine national team and, why not, of planetary football would like on the field.
It should be remembered that Argentina was eliminated in the quarterfinals of South Africa 2010 with Diego Maradona in the technical direction and Leo Messi in the lead. La Albiceleste lost 0-4 to Germany in a tournament that the Spanish finally won in the final against the Netherlands.
Argentina started the road in Group B with a win against Nigeria (1-0), South Korea (4-1) and Greece (2-0). In the round of 16 he gave an account of Mexico (3-1) and the defeat against the Germans sentenced Maradona’s departure from the bench.
