At the age of 33 his star was fading, yet Diego Maradona still made a massive impact on the 1994 World Cup, even if it was for the wrong reasons. He only played in two games, before he was sent home from the USA hosted tournament in disgrace. The pint-sized genius failed a drug test following Argentina's match with Nigeria. He would later blame the positive result on an energy drink, but the incident brought an end to his love affair with the competition. Post tournament, many people pointed to his celebration after scoring against Greece as evidence of his drug abuse.
