Maradona, who was in neighbouring Italy meeting the Pope last week, was not in Croatia by chance. Diego’s grandfather on his mother’s side emigrated from the Croatian island of Korčula to Argentina. Maradona has himself said that he named his daughter Dalma after ‘Dalmatia’.  It is not the first time the FIFA Player of the 20th Century has been in Croatia. He played in Zagreb for Argentina against Croatia in the 1990’s, and also in a charity match on the Croatian coast with his pal Davor Šuker and Goran Ivanišević.
