Fans of Argentina had almost given up but a late goal from Marcos Rojo put the white and blue brigade ahead, giving them a chance to move into the next round. As Messi and Co. battled it out against a resilient Nigerian side, the cameras often picked up Argentine legend Maradona, in animated situations. Throughout the game, El Pibe de Oro could be seen wigwagging and waving wildly, and in one occasion, fainted as a result of low blood pressure. But Twitter is far from being worried about Maradona’s health.
A quick look at #Maradona shows a number of memes circulating about the former footballer. While Maradona was seen with several expressions, including flipping the bird after Argentina’s win, Twitter is gripped with one particular look.
With his hands crossed, Maradona looks perfect for a rollercoaster ride.
Or even a water slide.
Looks like Priya Prakash Varrier can shoot!
Game of Maradona!
We need a friend like the guy holding Maradona
Whatever he’s smoking….
