Dibu Martínez has won everything there is to win with the Argentina national team. And he still has his eyes set for more. The Best goalkeeper in the world gave an interview to AFA Estudio where he spoke about a number of topics. Here is what he had to say about his career with Argentina:

“I want to continue leaving a legacy in the national team. I have only played 23 matches. I want to give the boys the illusion and the desire to see me. It makes me more proud to see them happy tha being World champion.

Martínez also spoke about the World Cup and the penalty kicks:

“I started crying in the locker room before the World Cup final. I told the boys that I was proud and that whatever happens, I was going to give my life in that match, that I was going to give everything for them until I’m injured.

“Penalties are my time to disconnect, to have fun. I don’t take it as pressure, I take it as fun. I use the pressure of the kicker in my favor.

“I know Van Dijk from Liverpool. I saw him kick across high twice. I stretched so much that I injured my hip. It still hurts.”
