Maradona’s daughter claims wrong jersey is up for auction

BUENOS AIRES (AFP) – Diego Maradona’s eldest daughter claims that the Argentina shirt being auctioned is not the one her late father wore when he scored the infamous “Hand of God” goal against England.

Dalma Maradona said the shirt was actually worn by her father during the goalless first half of the 1986 World Cup quarter-final.

Steve Hodge, the former England player who said Maradona swapped shirts with him at the end of the game in Mexico City, is selling the shirt, which is set to fetch more than GBP4 million (USD5.2 million).
