After he was refused entry (or using the wrong door) to Argentina's World Cup opener against Bosnia and Herzegovina, Diego Maradona decided to watch Uruguay's match against England on television with his pals. And an Argentine camera crew.
Judging by his boisterous reaction to Luis Suarez's 84th-minute winner, the man who punched in the goal that sank England in the quarterfinals of the 1986 World Cup still doesn't have much pity for them. He later wrote in his column for the Times of India that Uruguay's 2-1 win was "the same old story of what could have been" for England. "Gerrard and the English defense must take blame for both Uruguay goals," he added.
Maradona's imaginary FIFA ban from World Cup stadiums was lifted in time for him to attended Argentina's match against Iran, though. With his daughter Giannina (who has a son with Argentina striker Kun Aguero) at his side, Maradona sat through almost 90 minutes of Iran maintaining a nervy scoreless draw. But he was pictured leaving shortly before Lionel Messi scored the match's only goal at the start of injury time, which got #MaradonaMufa (Maradona jinx) trending on Twitter in his home country.
The 2010 World Cup had the Mick Jagger jinx and it seems only fitting that Maradona would be the bad luck charm at this one in Brazil.
