QATAR: This FIFA World Cup has only just kicked off, but hasn’t been short of upset victories. The previous week saw football giants, Argentine, suffer a nerve-racking 2-1 defeat to KSA in their opening game.
An upset such as this takes its toll on not just the fans, but the players as well. Argentine goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez, was highly distressed after this ordeal. Argentine still had two more games to play, and a chance to gain a spot in the round of 16.
“I couldn’t sleep that night,” Emiliano said. “Nothing was helping. Thankfully, one Pakistani fan whatsapped me the link to Mr. Qasim Ali Shah’s YouTube channel. His talks really helped me get out of that rut, it was like I was a changed man.”
And things did change for Argentina. In their second game against Mexico, Emiliano saved an attempt on goal in the closing minutes of the first half. The second half saw the Argentine scoring two goals, winning the game by 2-0.
