In Diego Maradona's show "By the Hand of the Ten،" the Argentina football legend is weighing in on the World Cup match between Colombia and Japan، which kicks off on Tuesday، CGTN reported.
The 1986 World Cup winner، like most football fans، is also looking forward to the return of Egypt’s Mohamed Salah when they take on competition host، Russia.
Maradona believed that Colombian head coach Jose Pekerman should think more about what his own team can do instead of what the opponent Japan could do at the moment، since they have amazing players like James Rodrigues.
The Argentina legend believed that nowadays، no one can consider Colombia to be a low-level team because whoever went to play in the country would be scored on by the Colombian team.
When it comes to the game between Russia and Egypt، Maradona said the host country was going to play harder this time with the superstar Mohamed Salah very likely to start.
Maradona stated it would be unbelievable to take a player like him to the World Cup and not put him in the line-up.
