Tata MARTINO and Gonzalo HIGUAIN spoke to the media following Argentina’s 4-0 semi-final win.
MARTINO spoke about the win, MESSI, the team and more. Here’s what he had to say:
“Our worry was about winning the match against the United States and to get ourselves positioned in the same place we were in a year ago.”
“The team was very solid, generous, prepared very well, we’re happy with the performance in general. We dominated the match during the entire 90 minutes.”
“It makes me happy that MESSI surpassed BATI’s record but knowing him, he’s more happy for the team. It’s very good that the best player in the world is also the National Team’s all time leading goal scorer.”
“It was necessary to get to the final but we never got a head of ourselves. We always took it one match at a time.”
“We pressed and prepared very well. We should do that against teams which do that better, like Chile.”
“We have another final coming up and we don’t want it to slip. We’re very much happy. To play three consecutive finals is not easy and this group has to break the drought.”
