After the opening night's performance Waller was introduced to Maradona and his manager Czysterspiller at a dinner reception and was subsequently invited along with his colleagues to a match played by Maradona's team Boca Juniors the following night. The day after the match Waller was summoned from his hotel room to the reception where he was greeted by Maradona's manager Jorge Czyterspiller who then presented the shirt and autographed ball to Waller and informed Waller that it was a shirt worn by Maradona.
