HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES...? Football legend Diego Maradona has been officially confirmed as the new coach of the Argentina national side. And, here, he looks a wee bit surprised!

Julio Grondona, the president of the Argentinian Football Association, made the much-anticipated announcement in Buenos Aires on Tuesday.

Maradona's first match in charge wil be a friendly against Scotland in Glasgow on November 19.

He then faces a tougher task in making sure Argentina qualify for the 2010 World Cup finals from the South American group.

"It's an honor," Maradona said.
