This mural was painted in a Romanian orphanage for teenage boys during the summer of 1994. Romania had just beaten Argentina in the World Cup 3:2, the winning goal scored by Gheorge Haji. In our version Maradona is sent off, but actually he was a substitute and did not even feature in the game, so I guess this was our attempt to embellish the legend. We had the village priest come to bless the mural, which hopefully helped to authorise our version of events. It looks like he is getting a kick in the head for his efforts.
