Rojo put Argentina in the World Cup last 16 with a dramatic late volley on Tuesday, putting his country's poor start to the World Cup behind them in a 2-1 win.
Maradona took it all in from a seat in a luxury box, and was highly expressive throughout the match, vacillating between expressions of joy, sorrow, prayer and eventually, taunting.
The Argentine legend did not hold back after Rojo's goal, and social media captured the scene.
