Maradona denied entry to Argentina match

Argentine football legend Diego Maradona expressed anger after he wasn't allowed to attend his country's match against Bosnia and Herzegovina Sunday at the Maracana Stadium, which Argentina won 2-1.

Maradona said he had been "deliberately" prevented from attending the match despite having a valid media accreditation card which allows him to attend all World Cup matches, reports EFE.

Maradona went to the stadium accompanied by his one-year-old son Diego Fernando, who was wearing Lionel Messi's shirt. They returned to their hotel after being denied entry.

The former star said he was eager to watch the game in order to meet the Argentine players whom he had coached during the last World Cup in South Africa, where the team were eliminated by Germany in the quarter-finals.
