Lisandro Martínez makes crucial block to deny Australia late 2-2 equaliser vs Argentina

Manchester United defender Lisandro Martínez stepped up to make a world-class block do deny Australia a late equaliser against Argentina.

Martinez came on early in the second half  after he replaced Papu Gomez in the 49th minute.

Seven minutes later Argentina doubled their lead after through Alvarez.

Australia pulled a goal back a few minutes after Argentina’s second goal and came close to staging a shock 2-2 draw when an Australian forward dribbled past an Argentina defender and had only Emiliano Martinez to beat from close range but Lisandro Martínez threw himself in and made a last-ditch block.

 

Argentina are surely thanking their stars for having Martinez at the right position to make the block.
