“Back in your box you”

Argentina coach (and dead ringer for Saddam Hussein) Diego Maradona, a man in fine physical condition, has vowed to streak around Buenos Aires should his side triumph at the upcoming World Cup.

Despite a torrid qualifying campaign, Argentina are amongst the favourites to succeed in South Africa for the first time since ‘El Diego’ lifted the cup as captain in 1986.

Speaking to reporters (via AP), Maradona said;

“If we win the World Cup, I’ll get naked and run around the city’s Obelisk.”

I’m not entirely sure what such a promise says about how much of a chance Diego thinks his side have of winning anything this summer.
