On the penalty kick between Argentina and Holland fighting out who will enter the final, Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero blocked two Holland’s penalties which helped Argentina reach final.
He said he had luck on his side when blocking the two goals. “Penalties are all about luck, that is the reality. I had confidence and thanks to God it turned out well. We go away happy and now we will prepare for the final from tomorrow. The moment should be enjoyed and we are going step by step.”
The 27-year-old Romero blocked shots by Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder to Argentina to victory after a goalless 120 minutes at the Corinthians Arena. Argentina now clash with Germany in Sunday’s final.
Romero’s place in the team was the subject of debate going into the tournament after he spent almost all of the last season on the substitutes’ bench at French Ligue 1 club Monaco. Now, he has proved his critics wrong throughout the tournament. Argentina won every match played in Brazil.
The striker Sergio Aguero who scored one of his side’s penalties, was equally enrapt at reaching the final. “ This means so much. A lot of people didn’t think Argentina would get to the Final but we knew what players we had, very good players individually. The match was about seeing who make a mistake and nobody did.”
Maxi Rodriguez said: “It is impressive. We know the pain we have been through, and we deserved some kind of happiness. Now we have to play the final but that is what we have dreamt of ever since we left Buenos Aires. We must make the most of it and let’s hope that the last 90 minutes are on our side.”
The Netherlands were eliminated from a major tournament on penalties for the fifth time as Argentina converted all four of their kicks. Whilst they will compete with Brazil for the third place.
World Cup is only with two matches to go, don’t miss these marvelous games.
