Emiliano Martinez is a beast : De Paul


His Argentine teammates are at a loss as to what nickname to call Emiliano Martinez. He saved Argentina four times with penalties.

Martinez heroically saved Argentina in this year’s quarter-finals of the Copa America. His teammate Rodrigo de Paul called him a beast for his wild animal-like attitude.

De Paul said of Martinez, who saved two penalties in the tiebreaker against Ecuador: “Dibu (Martinez’s nickname) is a beast. To be honest what he has done is unbelievable. He loves the Argentina jersey. He deserves it. We can depend on his safety. We are for him. I try to do it, but at times like these, it comes forward.”
