As if having Lionel Messi, Juan Roman Riquelme and Sergio Aguero in the same team was not enough, Argentina is set to play the Netherlands in the Olympic football quarterfinals Saturday with the legendary Diego Maradona on the stands, the dpa reported.
The Argentine icon was expected to arrive in China early Saturday, although he was not planning to stay long in that city.
Immediately after the match, he was set to travel to Beijing to support the Argentine teams in the men's basketball and women's hockey tournaments.
"He is coming to watch the game against the Netherlands," Aguero confirmed.
The Atletico Madrid star is particularly qualified as a source, since he is the boyfriend of Maradona's younger daughter Giannina, who is reportedly pregnant.
