Nicolás Otamendi commented on scoring for Argentina vs. Brazil and the attacks by Brazilian police on fans.
Otamendi scored for Argentina in their 1-0 win vs. Brazil at the Maracana. It was his second goal of the World Cup qualifiers and the World Cup champion spoke about scoring the goal. Speaking in an interview with TyC Sports, here is what he had to say:
“It was beautiful. I told Fideo (Ángel Di María) that he is not the only one who scores important goals, today it was for the win and I am more than happy to be here in this stadium with unforgettable memories.
“We are a team that seeks to make history, to break the rules and we try to do that with respect and with our game, which is the most important thing. Today we needed to win.”
The Argentine also commented on the attacks by Brazilian police on the Argentina fans:
“It is very annoying because in the end, it turns out that the only ones they hit are the Argentines. It happened in the final of the Libertadores, it was very important and today we were close by trying to stop the the police from hitting them because they were just hitting them for the sake of hitting, they didn’t even move and they hit them with the stick.
“I hope that this will change and that every team that comes to play in Brazil will be respected in the same way as everyone else.”
