The Argentine goalkeeper was the protagonist in Aston Villa’s victory (0-1) against Manchester United by challenging Cristiano Ronaldo to a penalty during injury time.
Emiliano “eldra” Martínez made four stops in the triumph of the villans at Old Trafford, but it wasn’t the biggest media highlight. Injury time was running and the locals had the opportunity to tie from eleven meters, but it did not happen. The execution was mistaken by Bruno Fernandes, but the psychological duel that the one from Mar de Plata posed to the Portuguese:
The famous phrase mentioned by the Argentine goalkeeper in the Copa América was recalled, when in the semifinals against Colombia he let go of a “I’m sorry, but I like you brother” before stopping Davinson Sánchez’s launch in the penalty shoot-out.
In addition to emphasizing that Cristiano Ronaldo was not the executor of the maximum penalty, something common throughout his career, it was also emphasized that it was the first penalty that Bruno Fernandes sent out of the three sticks in the Premier League.
The figure of Lionel Messi was remembered, very active during the Copa América penalty shootout for his comments towards Yerry Mina and who celebrated the victory in style. On this occasion, it was used as an external meme with a very happy face simulating that it was caused by the performance of the Dibu.
Insisting on the aforementioned phrase, a card distributed to all those who “were eaten” by the Argentine goal at the time of executing a penalty with him under sticks was used. In addition, a photograph of Cristiano Ronaldo was also used as a “subject eaten by the Draw”.
The Portuguese has scored four goals in four games with Manchester United since he began his second spell at Old Trafford, with Emiliano Martínez being the first to leave him without scoring since. The memes did not hesitate to make a joke that the Portuguese did not see a door.
With this result, the Premier League has tightened. In addition, Liverpool’s draw (3-3) at Brentford places them as the leader with one point ahead of the three that appear in the photograph and Everton.
These were some of the best memes of the performance of Emiliano Martínez, who continues to claim at Aston Villa after Arsenal sold him (17’4M) about a year ago.
