Still got it! Diego Maradona bags a couple of goals and an assist in a charity match

Diego Maradona is still undoubtedly much slower than he was.

In truth, judging from the clip above, if El Diego moved any more lethargically, he would be going backwards.

But, the wand of a left foot is still very much in evidence!

On Thursday evening, Maradona played in a charity match and scored a fine lob, followed by a penalty before a bobbly left-footed cross secured an assist.

It wasn’t the 1986 World Cup all over again but his celebrations are infectious and for a man who has had health problems, this is a hugely encouraging video.

Enjoy!
