Argentina’s former number 10 Diego Maradona expressed his pride after Argentina’s qualification for the 2018 World Cup.

The message was posted by Maradona with a picture of Lionel Messi where Messi was celebrating qualification to the World Cup with teammates.

Maradona, known for his eccentricity had previously posted a video for his fans with the message "The selection was always above any name."


Para mis fans... La selección siempre estuvo por encima de cualquier nombre.

The post was quite ironic as it showed a video where Maradona was seen juggling and warming up with various teams he had featured for during his playing career.

The message was posted before the start of Argentina’s crucial qualifier against Ecuador.
