Argentina just about saved themselves from exiting the World Cup by beating Nigeria with minutes to go but it was Diego Maradona who was up in the stands creating all sorts of headlines.
Maradona was overcome with emotion after Messi found the net in the first half, with the goal prompting the 57-year-old to thank God.
The occasion all seemed to be a bit too much for Maradona at one stage as he even appeared to fall asleep.
