Diego Maradona, who helped Argentina win the 1986 World Cup, has requested a meeting with Argentina’s players before their final World Cup group game tomorrow.

After losing to Croatia, the two-time winners must beat Nigeria to have any chance of reaching the last 16.

Maradona is “furious and upset” and criticised Argentine Football Association president Claudio Tapia.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal, the coach and manager have admitted a “serious law breach” after the team delayed play by two hours on day three of the drawn second Test against West Indies in protest over Chandimal’s ban for ball-tampering on the second day.

Chandimal lost an appeal against his one-match suspension on Friday.

In the meantime, Marin Cilic saved a match point before beating Novak Djokovic to win his second title at Queen’s Club.

The 29-year-old Croat fought back to win the Fever-Tree Championships 5-7 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 in the longest final in the tournament’s history.
