The Argentine team led by Lionel Scaloni beat Colombia on penalties, after 1 to 1 in 90 minutes, and got into the grand final of the Copa América in Brazil 2021, thanks to the spectacular work of goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez, who contained three of the five penalties in the shootout.
The show of the goalkeeper, who spoke to each of the five players of the team commanded by Reinaldo Rueda, was joined by the celebrations of the Argentine players, with unpublished images that until a few hours ago had not come to light.
In addition to the immense happiness of Lionel Messi, the image of Guido Rodríguez trembling and the relief of Rodrigo De Paul, who was more nervous than the rest for having missed his penalty and felt responsible for his erratic execution, the filming of the beginning of the celebrations delivered a gesture from Nicolás Otamendi that went viral on social networks.
Otamendi did not forget the celebration of Miguel Borja after converting his shot from the twelve steps, when he danced next to Draw Martínez with a striking clatter, that’s why he took revenge and he replied to load it after winning the ticket to the final.
The duel was very spicy and, between the twists and turns of Messi with Yerry Mina and Martínez with all the Colombian footballers, the “Albiceleste” celebration served as a discharge for the grand final against Brazil, next Saturday, July 10 at the mythical Maracanã Stadium.
