the soccer god is in India...

Yes... its the great Diego Armando Maradona, is on his two day visit to India. And the mecca of Football in India,kolkatta, is all set to welcome Maradona. After the Mumbai terrorist attack on 26th Nov, the proposed visit was under question. But soon after the England Cricket team in coming back to resume the Test Series in India this is Maradona who is scheduling his visit to India today. Now when i remember my memories in my school days I just get the few players those days, he is the most electrifying player who was followed by people in my place. My place being a local hub for soccer lovers , we just could not stop our legs to swing like his moves then. Bengal being the mecca of football in India we too there in Orissa just were crazy about football there in berhampur,Orissa in the nineties. I remember the local clubs there which were founded long back in ninteen sixtiess and holding local tournaments were much fascinated by the individual team spirits and greatly followed the Argentine and Brazilian teams. I being a part of the great Barracks Club was a follower of the God. Now to our surprise he is in India and i am just happy to see new sprints and media coverage on his tour to India. What can be said about the God. Coming from scratch he became the God with his tremendous and extraordinary Talent with the ball. He lived football and made the game as popular is it is now. His personality was speaking when he was with the ball. Maradona was the centre figure for few controversies but undoubtedly he is the best player the world has ever seen and we love him...
