Maradona blasted by fans for antics during Argentina’s 2-1 victory over Nigeria

The footballing icon caused a stir on social media with a middle finger gesture as his country progressed to the knockout stages

The Hand of God legend stole the show during Argentina’s dramatic 2-1 victory over Nigeria.

Maradona was pictured showing two middle fingers in the stands after Marcos Rojo’s late winner to send the Albiceleste through.

He also danced with a female Nigeria fan and performed a bizarre Dracular-style cross in front of his chest when Lionel Messi put his country ahead.

Rio Ferdinand and Gary Lineker were among those who condemned the 57-year-old’s antics.

Ferdinand said: “His career as a football player on the pitch was up there with the best, but unfortunately there are moments like this that do arrive. It is not nice to see that.”

Lineker added: “Diego Maradona perhaps let himself down with his celebration.”
