Maradona to meet with Argentina players ahead Eagles showdown

Football Legend DIEGO MARADONA has reportedly requested a meeting with Argentina’s players in an attempt to inspire the wounded squad ahead of their crucial Eagles clash on Tuesday.

The Le Abiceleste must beat Nigeria in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday if they are to avoid a premature exit following a disastrous 3-0 defeat by Croatia.

Maradona who is respected as one of the greatest footballers of all time said he will be coming to meet the players with other Argentina greats.

“I would love to hold a meeting with them, with (Nery) Pumpido, with (Sergio) Goycochea, with (Claudio) Caniggia, with (Pedro) Troglio, even with (Daniel) Passarella if he wants to come, and with (Jorge) Valdano,” Maradona told Venezuelan TV channel Telesur.

“We’re going to defend our honour, boys. It cost us too much to be where we are for Croatia to come and hit us for three goals and to leave with our arms crossed without anyone putting a foot in.”

Meanwhile, former Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano who is also one of the most senior player in the Argentina squad has denied any rift between the Players and Manager Sampaoli earlier on Sunday.
