‘Our destiny was to suffer’

Argentina’s goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez who put up a superb performance to ensure his country won the 2022 World Cup, has said that his team’s destiny was to suffer for the trophy. 


The Aston Villa goalkeeper who also saved a penalty during the shootout that ensued after extra time, said the match was quite a complicated one. 


Speaking to Television Publica, Martinez said; 


“We suffered a lot. We thought we were in control but they managed to come back.

“It was a very complicated game. Our destiny was to suffer. They had one last chance to win, luckily I was able to stop it with my foot. It’s a moment I’ve always dreamed of living, I have no words for it. I left very young for England and I would like to dedicate this victory to my family.”
