There’s a player who was entering the heart of the Argentine fan not only because of his good performances, but also because of what he broadcast in the Copa América that the National Team won this year in Brazil. That is Emiliano Martínez, the famous Cartoon, the one with “look how I eat you”. The goalkeeper had his first game at the Monumental and people gave him a full ovation.
The ovation to the Drawings Martinez:
Emiliano already had a game played for the Argentine national team, but that was in Santiago del Estero, a 1-1 vs. Chile in June and without an audience. Then came the America’s Cup and its consecration, with unforgettable penalties against Colombia and a title in the Maracana that is already a legend. What’s more, a certain Lionel Messi filled him with praise: “We knew we had a phenomenon under the arc, that at least two were going to catch, and he did not disappoint. He deserves it because he is a beast.”
With that title on your back and his great present in the Premier League (he recently crossed paths with Cristiano Ronaldo before a penalty), Draw appeared at the Monumental and the fans cheered him loudly. Very strong. “Olé, Olé, Olé, Drawuu, Drawuu”, they shouted at Núñez and the goalkeeper heard him well, while preparing his warm-up before playing vs. Uruguay.

“La Scaloneta is protected by the Draw Martínez”, it was possible to read on a banner, because yes, they also dedicated messages to the archer from the rostrum. Although almost all the posters and flags were for Messi, Emiliano had his place. Deserved place.
