Pezzella’s omen to Montiel in the penalty shootout of the Qatar 2022 World Cup final

They follow the stories that emerged from the unforgettable final between Argentina y France in it World Cup Qatar 2022, one of the best in history due to the 3-3 tie, the emotions and the drama. The match was defined by penalties and the last shot for those led by Lionel Scaloni was under the supervision of a specialist Gonzalo Montielwho had the greatest responsibility on his right foot.

Argentina was precise in their executions and on the fourth attempt they were within a shot of winning the third World Cup. Cachete Montiel was chosen, but he did not seem to be in a good mood, according to what his partner revealed German Pezzella.

Both did not get to play together at River Plate and joined different teams from the era led by Marcelo Gallardo. However, they know each other a lot and have a lot of confidence. Although the two coincided in the process of Scaloni in the National Team and since the previous to the 2019 Copa América played in Brazil they were in the consideration of the Pujato strategist.

Qatar 2022 – Argentina Vs France – Definition By Penalties

In full definition by penalties against France, the defender noticed that the winger was not one hundred percent with his imprint for having committed a penalty and approached him. “At one point I wanted to pick him up because he was a little down and I said, ‘what are you kicking, fourth?’ ‘Yes’, he tells me. ‘So rest assured that Dibu is going to save one or two penalties and you are going to define it‘” he revealed in an interview with DSports.

Pezzella’s blind trust in Emiliano Martinez was reciprocated and the goalkeeper contained the shot to Kingsley Coman y Aurelien Tchouameni he threw her out. They hit for the Albiceleste, Lionel Messi, Paulo Dybala, Leandro Paredes, and the maximum tension was present. Montiel’s turn came and he shot her across to the right of Hugo Lloriswho did not guess the stick, defined history in favor of Argentina.

The measured celebration with a slight jog towards the right sector and taking off his shirt were the reactions of Cachete who at that moment did not fall, but converted a penalty that went down in the history of Argentine soccer. It was a team effort, but his score closed the series from the twelve steps so that Montiel and all his teammates achieved glory.

Pezzella told the anecdote in which Dibu Martínez was asked not to speak to the press after the suspended match with Brazil in São Paulo

Apart from the excerpt from the interview in which he recounted his talk with Montiel, an anecdote told by Pezzella was also known. It was about the suspended match between Brazil and Argentina for the Qualifiers. From that match in which only five minutes were played in the Estadio Arena Corinthians from San Pablo, in the locker room there was a special request to the Argentine players: “The atmosphere was very heated and we were all very sensitive. Dibu, el Cuti, Gio Lo Celso and Emi Buendía had to go back to England”.

“Before they tell the Dibu: ‘The airport is close, it’s going to be full of cameras, don’t talk because things are hot’. We sat down to eat, the dishes were on the table, we raised our heads and saw Dibu on the sports channels (laughs), saying, ‘I don’t care at all, I’m going to come the same’”.

Pezzella debuted in the National Team with Jorge Sampaoli in 2017, but in the Scaloni era he consolidated himself as a good alternative in the central defense, a position in which the national team has other strongholds such as Lisandro Martinezwho came to share a line of three defenders with the starters Nicholas Otamendi y Christian Romero.
