This shirt was worn by Edwin Cardona during the Copa Diego Maradona game between Boca Juniors and Newell’s Old Boys which took place in Buenos Aires, “Estadio Alberto Josè Armando” (La Bombonera), on November 29th 2020. This shirt is a special shirt released to pay tribute to Diego Armando Maradona, the Argentina’s legend who died three days before the game at the age of 60. Maradona won a 1981 title with Boca before moving to Europe, and ended his career with spells at both Newell’s and Boca. Before the match, the players wore special shirts for a minute’s applause next to a flag and picture of Maradona, one of the greatest ever footballers. There were Maradona banners and flags all around the stadium, while a remote control car with a Boca jersey brought on the match ball. The Copa Diego Armando Maradona is the new name for the Argentine league cup, which is effectively a replacement for the league this season. During the game, Boca players all had Maradona’s name on the back of their shirts, while Newell’s players all had the former Argentina captain and manager’s famous number 10 on the front of theirs. The referee had a large message saying “Gracias Diego” on the back of his shirt. After Edwin Cardona’s free-kick gave Boca the lead, the players stood around an Argentina jersey and applauded, while Maradona’s daughter, Dalma, was in tears watching from her father’s box. Cardona scored both goals in a 2-0 win. Maradona, who won the 1986 World Cup with Argentina as a player, suffered a heart attack at his Buenos Aires home on November 26th. There were three days of national mourning in Argentina after his death.
