Diego Maradona meets Belgium’s legendary Jean-Marie Pfaff, in Dubai, after 30 years of Mexico 1986.
Soon, it will be exactly 30 years since Diego Maradona’s legendary World Cup achievement in Mexico 1986.
Commemorations of the event have already started – even if there is no official celebration or event for that.
With the efforts of UAE’s Bader Hareb, a well known figure in football and ex-Al Wasl manager (where Maradona was head coach), a meeting and a friendly match saw Diego Maradona and Jean-Marie Pfaff together. The legendary Belgian goalkeeper was at the receiving end of two goals scored by Maradona in the semi-finals of World Cup 1986 in Mexico. [Video Here]
This is not the first time that Maradona meets some of the people he “tortured” during his glory days, as he already met Peter Reid of England, in 2011, through Al Wasl contacts too, 25 years after his goal of the century. [Video of that Meeting Here]
