ARGENTINA PREPARES FOR THE 1982 WORLD CUP

This is the actual jersey that Diego Maradona wore for Argentina during their friendly match vs Portuguese club Benfica on 26 May 1982 at the Monumental Stadium in Buenos Aires. This was the last preparation game for the title holders prior to their participation in the 1982 World Cup.

DIEGO MARADONA ARGENTINA MATCH WORN JERSEY vs BENFICA, 1982 WORLD CUP PREPARATION

The Le Coq Sportif shirt was made in France for the Argentine national team, it has a sewn AFA patch while the brand logo and back number were applied in white felt. This is a RARE jersey; the common '86 version used in a preparation friendly vs Grasshopper and all other shirts from the '86 period are often misrepresented as being from 1982.
