Quoted from the Bleacher Report, Maradona received medical aid shortly after Marcos Rojo scored Argentina’s decisive victory over Nigeria in the final Group D 2018 World Cup match. The goal ensured Argentina won 2-1 and qualified for the next phase.
Mentioned that Maradona should be supported by medical officers to undergo examination at Saint Petersburg Stadium. Argentine football legend was then immediately taken to the hospital.
Maradona was always in the stands in all Argentina matches in this 2018 World Cup. He looked so solemnly celebrating Lionel Messi’s goal and then very enthusiastically rejoiced after Rojo scored the second goal – including by raising his middle finger.
It is not known exactly what Maradona experienced so he must be taken to the hospital. Maradona was hospitalized before the 2018 World Cup begins, but when he was reportedly only undergoing treatment because of problems in his knee.
