  Diego Armando Maradona

When I say "football", I mean "soccer"; this sport is a national passion (although Argentinians stand out in several sports). And who is the maximum football idol? Diego Armando Maradona, also known as "la mano de Dios" (God's hand). This controversial but genial player was born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1960; he played in his country and in Europe (he is a hero in Naples!), and he was World Champion with the Argentinian team.
There are many teams at first division; the most famous are from Buenos Aires: River Plate and Boca Juniors; both teams have impressive stadiums in Buenos Aires, but there are some other important teams and stadium all over the country.
