At this World Cup, it seems there are as many cameras trained on Maradona during matches as there are on Argentina's players. He stood with his arms outstretched and looked to the sky at one point during the game against Argentina.
No other figure or former player is overshadowing their national team like Maradona is with Argentina at the World Cup. Then again, few have the emotional mood swings, box-office temperament and back story that Maradona has.
FIFA was keeping quiet, too. Maradona is an official ambassador for the world's governing body but was not on the official list of FIFA guests for the Nigeria game.
