Moscow : Diego Maradona has eased concerns over his health after a doctor told him to go home at half-time during Argentina’s dramatic win over Nigeria.
Maradona ignored advice to leave game: “I wanted to stay because we were risking it all. How could I leave?”
The 57-year-old ignored advice, though, staying on in the crowd to watch Marcos Rojo’s 86th-minute winner save Argentina from elimination and assure them of a place in the last 16.
He celebrated the goal by swinging his arms back and forth with middle-finger gestures, captured on TV cameras.
