Diego Maradona rushed to the hospital after suffering a medical scare in Argentina’s victory over Nigeria (Photos)

Argentina’s do-or-die game against Nigeria was almost do-or-die for Diego Maradona — the dude suffered a medical scare at the end of the World Cup game and was reportedly hospitalized in Russia.

Throughout the game, the 57-year-old legend was wildin’ out in his seats at St. Petersburg Stadium — shouting, praying and flipping people off.

But, when Argentina’s Marcos Rojo scored the go-ahead goal in the 87th minute, Maradona’s body couldn’t handle the excitement … and paramedics raced to treat him.

Don’t worry, he’s alive … but according to ESPN’s Diego Cora, he was eventually taken to a nearby hospital to be checked out.

Maradona has a history of health problems, including breathing and heart issues … as well as a much-publicized cocaine addiction.

Argentina’s next game is against France on Saturday … hopefully, he’ll be rested up and ready to go by then.
