Maradona refuses to get carried away

The South Americans won all three of their Group games and will play Mexico in the first Knockout Round on Saturday.

“Now the road gets more difficult, and the hierarchy of each team comes into play,” Maradona said.

“You always talk about Germany, Italy, Brazil, that they’re playing bad, but they are always in the semi-finals, in the final, in the second round, in the quarters.”
