Diego Maradona flipped off the world when Argentina scored their game-winning goal


Diego Maradona couldn’t resist engaging the haters after Argentina scores a pivotal late goal against Nigeria.

Maybe we’re misconstruing what Maradona is doing here. Perhaps he’s not flipping everyone off on live TV. Perhaps he’s just saying “Two, we scored a second goal!” That would just be a helpful service to let people know what was happening, in case the scoreboard was obscured in the stadium.

Bill Russell made a prediction on Monday night, but he thought Argentina would only score one.

In Russell’s defense, Robbie Williams made the wrong prediction too during the opening ceremony.

The World Cup is for the birds.
