We praise Messi, but Martinez is a hero. It's always good to see a South American team in the semi-final. The fans have been amazing tonight, right behind the team. All Argentina games, three quarters of the stadiums have been Argentinian fans. It makes me really proud. Qatar is far from Argentina, it is not easy to get here!
