Emiliano Martínez could not complete his second match with the Argentine national team, after suffering a hard blow for which he had to leave the field of play on a stretcher and with an orthopedic neck in the match against Colombia.A the 37 minutes of the first half, the goalkeeper jumped to dispute an aerial ball with Yerry Mina. While Dibu kept the ball, he collided with the defender and fell hitting his head against the turf. After being treated for several minutes by the medical staff, the Argentine insisted that he did not want to leave, although he eventually relented and was replaced by Agustín Marchesín.
Upon leaving the field of play, the broadcast of the match showed Martinez getting into an ambulance on his own to go to a clinic for studies. “The studies carried out on goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez have yielded satisfactory results. The Aston Villa player returns without problems to Buenos Aires along with the rest of the squad,” the official medical report later reported.
