Read on to discover the anthem that Argentine singer Rodrigo created to honor this soccer superstar.

  • Diego Armando Maradona Franco was born on October 30, 1960, in the Lanús neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
  • Nicknamed the Golden Boy, his short stature (5"5') allowed him to maneuver with great skill on the court and his vision of goal made him the winner of the award given by FIFA to Player of the 20th Century.
  • On November 25, 2020, unfortunately, the world champion and creator of the so-called Hand of God died at his home in Tigre in Argentina due to a heart attack after being discharged from the hospital after brain surgery.

As we already said, despite the great loss of such an extraordinary soccer player, the Argentines can feel reassured because they knew how to pay tribute to their idol in life.

The tropical music singer and also late Rodrigo created in 2000 a song that sums up the life and greatness of Diego Maradona in world football.

The song tells how a boy from a vulnerable context made the ball an extension of his feet and managed to become a legend in the world of sports.

In addition, the song focuses on the story of the play that gave Argentina the victory and subsequent FIFA World Championship in 1986 against England.

The hand of God was a term used by the Diego to describe the controversial play in which he managed to score what would be called the goal of the century "a little with his head and a little with the hand of God" according to his words.
