(FT) ARG 3-2 COL: Emiliano Martinez Save Three Incredible Penalty As Argentina Defeat Colombia

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez was the hero for Argentina as he saved three times in a penalty shootout to take his team into a Copa America final against Brazil.

After Tuesday’s semi-final against Colombia finished 1-1 after 90 minutes, Martinez, who left the London club in summer 2020 tried to distract Colombia’s players in the shoot-out with a barrage of trash talk and saved from Davinson Sanchez, Yerry Mina and Edwin Cardona.

Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martinez and Leandro Paredes scored for Argentina to booked a spot against the host nation in Saturday’s final at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium.
