Led by Lionel Messi, 31, as the captain, the Argentina national football team defeated the Super Eagles the Nigeria national football team led by John Obi Mikel, on June 26, 2018 at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in St. Petersburg, Russia. The victory was celebrated by Argentine football legend Diego Maradona, 57, so zealously that his health was compromised.
It was Marcos Rojo, 28, who saved the Argentina national football team from elimination in the group stage. Overwhelmed by the winning goal in the 86th minute, Maradona was caught by the camera leaning over a railing in an executive box, showing his middle fingers and cursing at the people below him.
Later, Maradona collapsed into a chair after being assisted from his seat. Russian paramedics treated the FIFA Player of the 20th Century, who was checked for low blood pressure, Argentine newspaper La Nacion reported.
It is necessary for people who are 40-74 years old to have their blood pressure checked at lea once every five years, according to the United Kingdom’s National Health Service. People like Maradona who suffer from low blood pressure may also have some medical conditions, such as diabetes.
It was Maradona who captained the Argentina national football team in 1986. He led the team to victory in the 1986 FIFA World Cup, which took place from May 31, 1986 to June 29, 1986 in Mexico.
Maradona played for the Argentina national football team from 1977 to 1994. Since 2017, he has been managing Al-Fujairah S.C., a football and sports club based in the Emirate of Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14, 2018 and will end on July 15, 2018. After defeating the Super Eagles, the Argentina national football team will compete against Les Bleus, the France national football team, in the round of 16 on June 30, 2018.
