Maradona not friendly to cameramanís foot
By GARETH WHEELER, QMI Agency
Continuing the theme of talented teams with distractions, enter Argentina.
Head coach Diego Maradona is a walking, talking, real-life distraction.
In a typical, wacky day for the soccer legend, Maradona ran over a cameramanís foot on his way to announcing his 23-man World Cup roster.
At first, Maradona berated the cameraman, blaming him for getting in the way. ďHow can you put your leg there where it can get run over, man?Ē Maradona asked.
More important than deciphering Maradonaís lifestyle choices or driving skills are the methods behind his squad selection. Certain circles questioned Maradona for omiting veteran Inter Milan duo Javier Zanetti and Esteban Cambiasso from his squad.
There werenít any more major surprises in his final team selection, with Newcastle defender Fabricio Coloccini being the biggest named axed from the squad.
The Canadian menís national team is in Buenos Aires, where it will try to avoid being run over by Maradona and powerful Argentina in an international friendly on Monday.
