Frankfurt - Diego Maradona celebrated the 20th anniversary of his hand of God goal in 1986 against England and then predicted that the two sides would meet in the final on July 9.
The former Argentine captain partied into the early hours of Thursday morning after Argentina's draw with Holland, according to German newspaper Bild.
Neighbours called the police to complain about the noise as
Maradona and friends sang 'We'll win again, We'll win again as we did in '86' long in to the night at an Italian restaurant in Frankfurt.
'We are invincible, we are the best,' added Maradona who arrived with 14 friends and family members at the pizza parlour shortly after Argentina had drawn with Holland to finish top of their group.
'We were Champions 20 years ago and we will be again, beating England in the final,' the former Argentine star shouted.
At 4:18 a.m. the police arrived after calls from neighbours, disturbed by the noise, and Maradona's party drew to a close. Maradona should be fit for Saturday when he will cheer on Argentina against Mexico in the last 16.© 2006 dpa - Deutsche Presse-Agentur
