THE CLUB

Maradona and Riquelme

Boca Juniors play like fire at La Bombonera

What a club! There’s no other like it. Boca, the People’s Team, Los Xeneises, with its super fans, the bosteros. Founded by Italian immigrants, Boca Juniors in their yellow/blue kit play to win, especially over the local Baraqueños. Boca is the epitome of football passion and the stadium La Bombonera, its home.

BUENOS AIRES

Buenos Aires, Argentina’s vast capital, sun-kissed, known for tango and Piazzolla, Jorge Luis Borges and its passionate, frenzied obsession with football. From the working-class roots of Boca Juniors and their port-side home to the wealthier River Plate, football in the streets, on the sidewalks, in the playgrounds and the parks sweats the atmosphere, the soul of the city across class and social divides. Football lives here.

Boom. Bap.

He shoots he scores, BOCAAAAAAAA

“Our legendary player, yes it was Maradona. But it was also Riquelme. He won five league titles with us but I like to remember his first goal of so many for us back in 1996. He was just a teenager, twisting and turning all over the place, finally moving tightly inside the 18-yard box as the ball came in from the left he arrowed it first time into the top left hand corner of the goal. Magic!”
