2022 FIFA World Cup winning Argentinian goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez set to visit Kolkata for a promotional trip!

Argentina’s FIFA World Cup-winning custodian Emiliano Martinez will make a marketing trip to Kolkata in the latter part of June or early July, according to the man spearheading the campaign. Satadru Dutta, who was important when welcoming the late Pele and Diego Maradona to Kolkata, informed PTI via London on Friday night the contract for their trip had been made.

Martinez was a key figure in Argentina’s 2022 World Cup victory in Doha, which was led by Lionel Messi. He denied two penalty attempts versus the Netherlands in a tense quarterfinal match, and he accomplished the exact same thing again France in the final.

He also sparked criticism with his post-trophy celebrations and taunting of France’s Kylian Mbappe, with many slamming him for his “unsportsmanlike conduct.” Martinez, 30, who presently competes with Aston Villa in the English Premier League, emerged as the World Cup’s top custodian. He was also nominated for the same award in the 2021 Copa America, that Argentina triumphed with Messi.

“Tentative dates for the visit are June 20-21 or July 1-3. Everything has been signed and we will decide the exact dates in a day or two. Tomorrow, we will do a small photo shoot.” Dutta, a sports promoter in Kolkata said.

“I am delighted that after much effort Martinez will visit Kolkata end of June. With all Argentina fans eagerly waiting, this will be something special for the City of Joy.”
