Argentina soccer legend Diego Maradona couldn't contain his excitement when Argentina took their 2-1 lead over Nigeria in their World Cup match on Tuesday.

Marcos Rojo came up big for Argentina and scored in the 86th minute of their match. While fans went wild, and Rojo gave Lionel Messi a piggyback ride around the field to celebrate, cameras caught Maradona flipping double birds to show his excitement for the goal.

After the game, Maradona was reportedly taken to the hospital.

While leaving his seat, a group of friends held an unsteady Maradona up. They helped get Maradona inside their suite, where it appears he received medical attention.

Argentina won 2-1 and will advance to the knockout stage. They will play France next.
