Argentine national team goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez did not hide his confidence, saying that he had completed his research on France.

The Argentine national team will play the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar with the French national team at Lusail Stadium in Qatar at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 19th.

After appearing as a player representing Argentina at an official press conference ahead of the final against France on the 17th (Korean time), Martinez said, “We are very good right now. We started off losing to Saudi Arabia, but we improved after that and gave everything to reach the World Cup final.”

Then, about the opponent team France, “I could have met them in the round of 16, so I kept watching. “They were world champions, difficult players,” he said. We will solve the game in our own way,” expressing both caution and praise at the same time. 스포츠토토

Since Argentina were in Group C, they could have met France in Group D in the round of 16.

However, both teams took first place in their respective groups, avoiding a clash in the round of 16.

Speaking of Messi, the team captain and ‘god of football’, Martinez said, “All Argentines want him to be happy. “We witnessed the great Messi at Copa America,” he said after sharing his experience of winning the South American Championship (Copa America) last year. He is always a great help to us,” he continued with praise. 

On the other hand, he said he had finished research on how to block French strikers, including Mbappe. “We continued to study. And we shared our opinions. We have to make very few mistakes tactically.” 

“To beat France, we have to think calmly. We have to play as we’ve been doing and control the game. It’s not easy in the game to recognize that we’re going to decide the match with just one game, but at the same time, you have to know that it’s the last game in the World Cup
