VIDEO: 55-year-old Diego Maradona scores in exhibition match

Ageing Argentinian scores in 'Match for Peace' in Morocco.

Watch as an ageing Diego Maradona scores in a ‘Match for Peace’ that took place in Morocco.

Playing alongside former stars including Liberian George Weah and Egyptian Mohamed Aboutrika, the controversial Argentinian whipped a shot into the corner of the net from outside the box before beginning his seemingly endless celebratory trudge back to the halfway line.

Maradona was also seen dancing in Laayoune, the largest city in the Moroccan Sahara:

Morocco’s King Mohammed VI was reportedly in the city “in a rare visit to mark 40 years since hundreds of thousands of Moroccan civilians marched across the border with the-then Spanish colony to lay claim to it”.
