Argentina moved by All Blacks' tribute to late football legend Diego Maradona

Argentina captain Pablo Matera has praised the All Blacks for their tribute to late football legend Diego Maradona before their Tri-Nations game last night.

New Zealand captain Sam Cane laid down an All Blacks jersey with ‘10 Maradona’ – his regular playing number – imprinted on the back of it in front of the Pumas players prior to kick-off in Newcastle.

Maradona, one of the greatest footballers in the history of the game and Argentina's most revered sportsperson, died earlier this week.

Matera said he didn't know about the tribute until the coin toss with Sam Cane telling him about it.
