Full name... Diego Armando Maradona He was to Argentina what Pele is to Brazil. A household name. A pop-culture icon. A beloved global phenomenon. One of the greatest and most influential soccer players of all time. Billions grew up with him. Millions admired him and still do, Soccer players wanted to be him and play like him. Boy, did he make his mark in this world! What a life! What a legacy! Gone but never will be forgotten. So long, Maradona Many thanks for the memories! Submitted for...
