Maradona dead last November at the age of 60. The three-minute video was shared on CONMEBOL's social media channels and features Opus' life is Life in the background, the same song Maradona famously warmed up to in the 1989 Europa League semifinal against Bayern Munich.
The commemorative video shows a hologram of Maradona as his jersey changes colors to represent all the teams he played for. Argentina juniors, Boca Juniors, Barcelona, Napoli, Sevilla, Newell's Old Boys, and Argentina.
It also features images of some of Maradona's most iconic moments; him talking about his desire to play in the Football World Cup as a child; receiving the trophy from Mexico's president in 1986, and his goal against England in that World Cup. CONMEBOL said in a statement that we pay tribute to one of the greatest players in history. For more details about FIFA World Cup All Groups Tickets click here.
After Maradona's death last year, the South American soccer federation called him the greatest player of all time, causing a stir in Brazil, where Maradona is also beloved but Pelé is considered even better. The video tribute to Maradona was supposed to take place in Argentina, but the country was stripped of the right to host the tournament.
Brazil became the emergency host just two weeks ago, despite its shocking coronavirus numbers. The commemoration ended with Maradona's farewell speech at Boca Juniors at La Bombonera stadium in 2001. May this party never end? May this love you have for me not ever end, Maradona said then. The projection ended with the year of his birth and the infinity symbol.
