A very slow and sluggish Diego Maradona proves that he can still strike a ball (Video)

Carrying a bit of timber

It’s hard to believe this is the same man who beat five players on that famous mazy run against England.

Diego Maradona scored a lovely goal during a charity game this weekend but his lack of pace was definitely the bigger talking point.

The Argentine icon could barely break into a power-walk as he tried to get past a defender in a legends match which marked the 40th anniversary of The Green March.

The defence definitely has to shoulder 99% of the blame as they simply refused to close down the 55-year-old as he shuffled to his left but the goalkeeper did try to get a hand to it.

The means don’t matter as it was the end result, a tasty finish, that broke the deadlock.
