Argentina coach Diego Maradona announces the final roster to compete in the World Cup after accidentally running over a journalist in his car.

Running over a journalist's leg is probably not the way Diego Maradona wanted to announce Argentina's World Cup squad.

The team coach, pulling into the Argentine Football Association, immediately responded.

COACH OF ARGENTINA'S WORLD CUP TEAM DIEGO MARADONA SAYING:

"What an asshole you are. How can you put your leg there where it can get run over, man?"

Maradona did eventually announce the 23-man team he will take to South Africa for this summer's tournament..

Players on the team were told the day before, says goalkeeper Diego Pozo.

"Yesterday I was training and they welcomed us and said we should enjoy it and give it our best."

Other players in the national team include Carlos Tevez of Manchester City and Lionel Messi of Spanish La Liga champions, Barcelona.

And as for the injured cameraman, he was examined by paramedics and taken away with apparent minor injuries.
