While November 25 will mark the second anniversary of the death of Diego Maradona, a “peace game” in tribute to the Argentinian icon will be organized on November 14 in Rome. A meeting in which big names in football will participate and which will be organized in partnership with WePlayForPeace, a foundation created by Pope Francis.
Ivan Rakitic, Daniel Alves, Gianluigi Buffon, Pepe Reina, Ronaldinho, José Mourinho are thus expected, as well as Luis Suarez, Angel Di Maria and Lionel Messi. And this despite the imminence of the World Cup, which will begin a few days later.
