Diego Maradona had a winning start as Al Wasl coach on Sunday.

Maradona's team scored two late goals for a 3-1 win over 10-man Ittihad Kalba in a preseason friendly.

Maradona's new team looked set to settle for a draw after Yaser Salem's own goal in the 28th minute had canceled out Manuel Olivera's 21st-minute header.

But Mohammed Jamal and Hassan Yousef scored in the last five minutes to give the former Argentina great a win in his debut.
