Maradona's Worn Shirt, Italy-Argentina 1987
Ciro Ferrara has donated this shirt that belonged to his own personal collection. This is the shirt that Maradona gave to him following Ferrara's debut with the Italian national team in 1987, a shirt that holds real sentimental value.
This is the blue and white Argentina national football team home shirt worn by former Napoli forward Diego Armando Maradona for an international friendly match against Italy.
The game was played at the Hardturm Stadion in Zurich on June 10, 1987 and ended in a 3-1 win to Italy. Diego Maradona scored the one goal for his team, taking them to 2-1, thanks to a luck deflection.
This was an unforgettable match for Ciro Ferrara, his debut in the national team. At the end of the match El Pibe de Oro gave his shirt to Ferrara, his team mate at Napoli.

This item was supplied to the squad for a match, was made available to the players on matchday and differs from the shirts found on general sale.
Many footballers from Naples and the Campania region have responded to Ciro Ferrara and the brothers Fabio and Paolo Cannavaro's appeal to help Neapolitan families overcome the coronavirus emergency. Each player has chosen their most expensive shirt, signed it and donated it to the Cannavaro Ferrara Foundation in support of the "Je Sto Vicino A Te" initiative.
The Cannavaro Ferrara Foundation was set up in May 2005 by Neapolitan champions - brothers Fabio and Paolo Cannavaro and Ciro Ferrara - to provide concrete support to their home city.
In recent weeks, the Covid-19 emergency has put the most at-risk families, the vulnerable and the homeless in serious difficulty.
In addition to supporting emergency healthcare facilities with donations, the Cannavaro Ferrara Foundation has decided to support the Naples area by launching an online campaign.
Je sto vicino a te: United for Naples.
This campaign puts football memorabilia up for auction with the proceeds contributing to the purchase of basic necessities, in collaboration with some select recognized local associations.
Driven by a strong love for their territory, Ciro, Paolo and Fabio have got many friends from the world of football involved – all sporting stars who have a connection with Naples and the Campania region.
Supporting the campaign are: Ciccio Baiano, Salvatore Bocchetti, Marco Borriello, Diego Contento, Mimmo Criscito, Danilo D'ambrosio, Antonio Di Natale, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Antonio Floro Flores, Pasquale Foggia, Ciro Immobile, Lorenzo Insigne, Armando Izzo, Rolando Mandragora, Dries Mertens, Antonio Mirante, Vincenzo Montella, Francesco Moriero, Antonio Nocerino, Raffaele Palladino, Fabio Pisacane, Fabio Quagliarella, Luigi Sepe, Guglielmo Stendardo, Stefano Sorrentino, Pino Taglialatela.
Every shirt tells a story about the football star who has donated the item, the athletes who want to help and will never forget how much Naples and Campania have supported them in their sporting endeavors.
