Diego Maradona’s Argentina qualify for World Cup with late winner against Uruguay

And apparently Diego feels vindicated by this narrow escape

Diego Maradona again enjoyed some jubilant celebrations after another late winner from his Argentina side. Mario Bolatti’s scruffy goal five minutes from time ensured Argentina qualified for next year’s World Cup.

Despite their uneasy qualifying campaign and the uncertain performance in beating Uruguay last night, Maradona decided to take his doubters to task. He said: “For those who didn’t believe in this national team, for those who treated me like garbage (I say) today we are in the World Cup with all the honours, beating a team like Uruguay.”

OTP can see this one ended in tears in South Africa if performances don’t improve.

    Congrats Diego…you qualified for the WC by the skin of your teeth with the best players in the world at your disposal.

    Now the only question is, will you manage to avoid rehab long enough to make it to Africa.
