June 6 1979 and cult-football-karma strikes; the NY Cosmos take on Argentina in a friendly. Diego plays.
The game finished 1-0 to Argentina thanks to a header from Daniel Passarella but the video we're really interested in is the one below, individual highlights of Diego's performance.
It's all there - the barrel-chested runs, the eye for a pass, the control, the desire to win, the cheek and the obvious class - but this is Diego before he was 'Diego Armando Maradona!'. This is Diego when a commentator still had to ask how to pronounce his name, hence the use of 'Maradonia' throughout.
I won't ramble on as this speaks for itself, just sit back and enjoy a master at work.
