Tonight, the whole of Argentina will be biting their fingernails as Argentina travel to Uruguay for a crucial World Cup qualifier that will decide whether the Albicelestes will be in South Africa next summer.

Diego Maradona has had a difficult time since taking over as coach, but despite this it is impossible to forget his accomplishments as a player.

Regarded by most as the greatest footballer of all time, Maradona enjoys God-like status in his homeland after almost single-handedly leading them to World Cup glory at Mexico '86.

The passion is so great that a group of fanatics in Rosario, Argentina founded the Church of Maradona (Iglesia Maradoniana) in 1998. It now possesses thousands of members all over the world.

Every October 30, Maradona's birthday, church members celebrate Christmas, or A.D (After Diego).
