All Blacks head coach Ian Foster is expecting Argentina to have even greater emotion in the wake of Diego Maradona's death.

Maradona, one of the greatest players of all time, died yesterday from a heart attack.

He was 60-years-old.

Foster says Maradona was an iconic sporting person and clearly had a lot of meaning for the people of Argentina and they acknowledge that.

Argentina’s coach Mario Ledesma says they will honour Diego Maradona by trying to match his passion for playing for the country.

Argentina is the only undefeated team in the Tri-Nations.

They beat the All Blacks 25-15 and drew 15-all with the Wallabies.

The Tri-Nations rematch between the All Blacks and Argentina is at 8.45pm Saturday.
