‘It’s our destiny,’ says Argentina goalkeeper Martinez

After playing a key role in the gripping penalty shootout triumph over France in the World Cup final on Sunday, Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez claimed that winning the tournament was “destiny.”

The 30-year-old Martinez prevented Kingsley Coman from scoring in the shootout, giving Argentina a 4-2 victory after the dramatic match finished 3-3 after extra time.

“It was a very complicated match, they came back to equalise in the game but it was our destiny to suffer,” said the Aston Villa keeper.

“All that I have dreamed of has been achieved. I have no words for it. I was calm during the penalty shoot-out, and everything went as we wanted.

“I left very young for England. I dedicate this victory to all my family.”
