Argentines celebrate their country’s return to the shirt worn by the late Diego Armando Maradona during the 1986 World Cup final.

The Argentine Football Association was given the shirt Maradona wore in the first half of the final that his country won against his German counterpart some 36 years ago.

German star Lothar Matthaus donated the shirt to the Argentine people, because he traded shirts with Maradona after the first half of the match.

The Argentine Football Association thanked Matthews.
