Diego MARADONA - Argentina 1978 in H.D

Diego MARADONA started his professionnal career the 20th october 1976 (Maradona's first game). Over the next two years Maradona’s reputation grows and in 1978 he becomes the Metropolitano Championship’s youngest ever top-scorer. Maradona made his debut for the Albiceleste in 1977 just four months into his professional football career. Playing in a friendly against Hungary as a 16 year-old, the crowd immediately recognise the potential he represents. Coach César Luis Menotti faces a choice for the 1978 World Cup. Maradona or Mario Kempes, potential or experience? When he opts for Kempes and cuts Maradona from his 25-man squad when announcing his final 22, there’s huge national debate. Maradona himself falls out with Menotti at his exclusion and becomes a polarising figure for the Argentine football public. That's the reason why there is no Maradona's sticker in the 1978 World Cup Panini Album. But Old School Panini repair that with his Panini sticker of 1978 World Cup :
