Former Napoli and Argentine forward Diego Armando Maradona who passed away November 25th, 2020, is to be honoured before PWD’s encounter against Kaiser Chief on Sunday November 29, 2020.
According to an official release from the world’s governing body FIFA’s Secretary General Fatma Samoura , Friday November 27, 2020, to all member associations, a minute of silence is to be given in honour of the fallen hero in all competitions.
Diego Armando Maradona made the football world a very interesting one in his career days. The football legend led his country as captain to the 1986 and 1990 World Cups. He won the 1986 World Cup over England with his infamous goal and four minutes later he literally dribbled the entire English attack and defence, and scored again to seal the victory for his country.
Maradona scored a total of 34 goals in 91 appearances with his country Argentina. The former Barcelona and Napoli legend recorded a total of 221 goals in 424 outings at the club level.
This is not the first honour given to the former Napoli news maker. A three day mourning declaration has been given by Argentinean President in honour of Maradona.
Thus the Abakwa Boy’s encounter against Kaiser Chief in the preliminary round of the CAF Champions League will see a moment of silence for the fallen hero.
