Front Page: South Korea Focuses on Diego Maradona, Past and Present

As we take a look at today’s newspaper front pages for our World Cup special daily feature, we find South Korea’s papers unsurprisingly focused on Diego Maradona past and present, with both The Chosun Ilbo and The Dong-a Ilbo visually juxtaposing the South Korean and Argentinian coaches. The JoongAng Ilbo, meanwhile, remembers the 1986 group stage match-up between the two countries, won 3-1 by Argentina with Maradona tormenting the Koreans.
