CONMEBOL organized the ceremony in its compound in the heart of Doha, where it also planted a symbolic tree called the Tree of Dreams. In 1986, Maradona’s teammates were Sergio Batista, Jorge Valdano, Oscar Ruggeri, Jorge Burruchaga, Ricardo Bochini, Nery Pumpido, Ricardo Giusti, and Héctor Enrique. In 1978, Ubaldo Fillol, Alberto Tarantini, Ricardo Villa, Daniel Bertoni, Omar Larrosa, and Mario Kempes were champions for Argentina.
“Diego is immortal, Diego is with us,” said the FIFA President. “We should not only pay tribute, but also celebrate Diego. In fact, I would like that from now on, in every World Cup, we should have a day to celebrate Diego Armando Maradona. Because, what this man did to make people fall in love with football, with our sport……..very, very few, perhaps nobody else, did what he did.”JAMB Result
