Together with Romero, Manchester United defender, Lisandro Martinez put on a solid defensive display. The World Cup hero, Emiliano Martinez held the fort. Gonzalo Montiel and Marcos Acuna were the other two players who were part of the four-man defence.

The online community, particularly Twitter, came together to heap praises for the excellent performance of Argentina in the friendly. La Albiceleste had 11 shots on target while they restricted Ecuador to just 5 shots throughout the match no shot on target. Cristian Romero and Lisandro Martinez have been hailed as the top defensive pairing for Argentina’s Copa America campaign this year.

Following the win against Ecuador, Romero now has three victories with Argentina this year, including two clean sheets, showing signs of his return to top form. Not only did he show exceptional defensive presence and ability, but he also played a very crucial role in Argentina’s offense. Romero momentarily moved up to an advanced position at the edge of the penalty area to provide former Manchester United winger, Angel di Maria, with an assist in the 40th minute of the game.
