Dibu Martínez referred to Andrew Redmayne’s tactics in Peru vs Australia.
Andrew Redmayne remains controversial internationally. This time, Emiliano Martínez, goalkeeper of the Argentine team, referred to the performance of the Australian in penalties with Peru. Although ‘Dibu’ said that he would not use the same technique as him, he stressed that the ‘dancer’ did everything for his country to go to the World Cup.
In an interview with ESPN, the ‘gaucho’ was asked if he had seen the definition from the twelve steps between Peru and Australia. Immediately, a smile was drawn on his face and he stated that he witnessed the playoff commitment in Qatar 2022 from the comfort of his home. Afterward, he proceeded to give his opinion of Andrew Redmayne.
“It’s his technique and his tactics, he qualified for the World Cup. I have seen that they have criticized him for doing that, for throwing the bottle at Gallese and the truth is that they are techniques of the moment. Today, Australia is in the World Cup. They are things that I would not do, but maybe what I did, there are people who would say that I would not do it. I have nothing with the Australian goalkeeper. He did what he had to do to send his country to the World Cup. To me he did perfectly well,” he expressed.

Why is Andrew Redmayne in the news? It all started when Australia’s coach, Graham Arnold, made the change of goalkeepers minutes before the end of the play-off extension on the way to Qatar 2022. The Peru bench had no idea of the 33-year-old keeper’s technique to save penalties. Something that he had already done years ago with his club in a definition of a national title.
Redmayne showed his strategy when Gianluca Lapadula stepped in front of his goal. He did not stop moving on the line, jumping and even seemed to dance. Despite his constant wiggling, he failed to block the first shots from the ‘bicolor’ players. However, what would happen in the last auction caused the Australian to be the cover of several newspapers. He contained the ball and in this way the oceanic cast obtained their ticket to the World Cup.
“It was like a moment of kill or be killed,” acknowledged the ‘Kangaro’ goalkeeper when he was asked about the action upon his arrival at the airport in his country. The Australian national team were received by a hundred people, the vast majority of whom were relatives or close friends of the players. “Yes, that happened,” added the goalkeeper when the press asked him about the images that were captured at the level of the field.
“We talked about it, if we had notes on our water bottle, if someone saw that, they would throw it away. I know how much it means to the boys and it was like a do-or-die moment so I seized my moment.”
