Goodbye Diego: football will not be the same

Diego Armando Maradona

Diego Armando Maradona

RIO DE JANEIRO, November 25, 2020 (MOREL) - Argentine colleagues will have much more to say than I do, a simple Brazilian in love with football - and sports journalist, by chance. But the death of Diego Armando Maradona demands that all of us, lovers of the most popular sport on the planet, demonstrate. That's why I write. My first contact with the star Maradona happened in 1989, during the Copa America held in Brazil. I started my career and I saw him miss a goal at Maracanã. Yes ... A missed goal, but what a move. From the midfield he tried to surprise the Uruguayan goalkeeper. The ball, capricious, touched the crossbar. Brazil ended up as champions of that Copa America, after 40 years.
