All Blacks pay the perfect tribute to Diego Maradona before Argentina match

Maradona tribute

The New Zealand team paid a touching tribute to the Argentine genius.

The All Blacks rugby team paid a poignant tribute to the late Diego Maradona on Saturday morning. The football genius passed away on Wednesday aged 60. Maradona suffered cardiac arrest in his native Argentina, a few weeks after undergoing brain surgery.

Over the past few days, tributes have been flooding in for the World Cup-winning captain. Maradona was the best player of his generation and considered by many to be the greatest footballer of all time.

All Blacks pay tribute to Maradona.

The New Zealand rugby union team organised a touching tribute of their own ahead of their Tri-Nations match against Argentina in Newcastle.

Before the team performed their traditional pre-match Haka, All Blacks captain Sam Crane walked towards the halfway line and the Argentina team with a New Zealand jersey in his hand.

The All Blacks jersey had ‘Maradona 10’ printed on the back.

Crane laid the jersey down on the halfway line.
