Argentina national team goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez spoke at a press conference on Thursday about a number of topics.
Emiliano Martinez appears to be the new number one goalkeeper for Argentina as he has already taken part in three matches. Three draws for Argentina, four goals allowed, one penalty saved, Martinez has yet to taste victory with his country but that’s not his fault.
With the team lacking goals and yet to win, Martinez was the player who spoke to the media as the team prepares for their match vs. Uruguay. Here’s what he had to say:
“I’m not taking this challenge with pressure, I’m prepared for this moment. I’ve tried to do what I can ever since I was a kid, I enter the pitch and think of nothing else.
“There are still things to adjust but I believe we are going to have a great Copa America.
“Aside from the number 10, I believe no spot is safe in the Argentina national team. This spot requires the best of me, everyone knows that we have to give our best to win a spot.”
In regards to himself, here’s what Martinez stated:
“As the matches go by, I’ll feel more secure and I’ll be able to transmit that to the team.
Emiliano Martinez: “The goalkeeping position of the Argentina national team is as great as they come. The truth is that I feel very well, I’m enjoying this moment a lot. I feel more secure in myself every time.
Once I enter the pitch, the goal is the same size everywhere. It doesn’t matter who I play or who the opponent is, I’m focused on myself.”
