Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has hailed Emiliano Martinez as a “phenomenon”, after he produced three saves in the penalty shoot-out against Colombia.

 

 

Albiceleste will face Brazil in the final, after winning 3-2 in the spot kicks against Colombia on Wednesday.

 

Martinez earned his first international cap last month following an impressive season with Aston Villa.

 

The 28-year-old has now made himself a hero for his country.

 

“We have Emi, who is a phenomenon,” said Messi, who converted from the spot in the shootout.

 

“We trusted him. We achieved the goal of being able to play all the games and now we are going to the final.”

  1. The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday presented 10 cars to recognise public servants who have distinguished themselves in the junior and senior categories across the State Civil Service.

    The Governor also announced a N5million cash gift for a Level 16 officer in Lagos State Civil Service for winning an impromptu quiz competition personally coordinated by the State’s Chief Executive.

    Speaking at the luncheon with the Year 2019/ 2020 outstanding officers, (Junior and Senior categories) in Ministries Departments and Agencies, Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas held in Ikeja, Governor Sanwo-Olu urged officers in Lagos State Civil Service to continue to be change agents and outstanding public servants.

    He also encouraged civil servants to continue striving for excellence and live as an example in whatever they do.

    The Governor also urged them not to give up in being the best to justify the confidence reposed in them as well as letting people have something good and original to say about them.

    Governor Sanwo-Olu while presenting keys and documents to the 10 recipients of the cars, which were drawn through a raffle draw commended the Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola for his efforts, saying Lagos State Government is committed to the welfare and service it promised to deliver to the state.

    The recipients of the cars who emerged through a raffle draw at the grand finale of activities lined up to commemorate the Year 2021 Public Service Day, comprised four junior and six senior officers.
