“I think he is the great figure of this stage of the FIFA World, no doubts, and not only for his stuck. This boy is handling the time to Colombia, making his teammates play”, emphasized the Golden Kid.
“For that all, James, who could play in the Real Madrid, is not afraid to go out to play. He is Guapo, he is somebody always present for his team, when they need him, he calls the ball. That is someone guapo in soccer”, said the player who led Argentina to the 1986 World Cup title in Mexico, who said that this time would have like to play with Costa Rica.
“At my age, I not get to Argentina, but I would have like to throw a wall with Costa Rica”, emphasized him.
The Mexican former goalkeeper Jorge Campos, invited to De Zurda, coincided with Maradona and considered that the Colombian “is a special player. He is totally different. There is not Falcao, and he appeared and said I am here. He is a complete player, a different player.”
