Tata MARTINO spoke to the media following Argentina’s 4-1 win against Venezuela on Saturday.
MARTINO spoke about ROMERO’s save, MESSI equaling Gabriel BATISTUTA’s goalscoring record and more.
Here’s what he had to say:
“The penalty which ROMERO saved was key for us to go calmly into half-time. We had a lot of goal scoring chances and we’re fair winners.”
“For the third goal the team was moving the ball around better and felt comfortable. The second half was very good. We have two exceptional goalscorers. HIGUAIN and AGUERO are decisive.”
“MESSI knows that he can unbalance teams and that they’ll mark him tightly. But he understood the match very well. He already tied it, but I would like for MESSI to surpass BATISTUTA in this Copa America.”
“We need to focus on the United States and try not to give them options.”
