Argentina goalkeeper Emi Martinez has tackled French football star, Kylian Mbappe over an old comment he made about the quality of South American football.

The French footballer was quoted saying in May that European nations are better prepared for the World Cup because they play “high-level matches all the time” against each other, whereas Argentina and Brazil do not face the same demands.

When Martinez was asked what he thinks about the comment Mbappe made about South American football at a press conference on Saturday, December 17, he stated that the PSG star doesn’t know enough about football.

He said;

“He doesn’t know enough about football. He never played in South America. When you don’t have this experience, it may be better not to talk about it. But it doesn’t matter. We are a great team, recognised as such.”
