Watch the video of Lautaro Martinez getting furious after nutmegging from Roberto Firmino.
Lautaro Martinez was part of the Argentine side which went down to Brazil in the Copa America Semifinals. Goals from Roberto Firmino and Gabriel Jesus was enough for the Selecao to overcome their fierce rivals.
It was a heated game as both the sides lost their head every now and then throughout the game. When Tite’s side were two goals to the good, Brazil had the job to contain and shut down Argentina from exploiting their defence.
Hence, Firmino dropped back and was linking up with the midfielders in the middle of the pitch. When he received a ball from his teammate Gabriel Jesus, Firmino saw an open space to keep the ball running. But, Lautaro Martinez was standing in the way. Seeing the opportunity, Liverpool forward nutmegged Argentine forward Lautaro Martinez.
The Argentine International fouled him and got furious for reason whatsoever. He lost his cool and replied ‘I will break your jaw’. While Firmino had no idea why his opponent was so aggrieved. Referee had to intervene and calm his head.
A reliable account named ‘Zizouology’ tweeted about this hilarious incident. It has gathered interest ever since then.
Watch the hilarious clip.

When other players was trying to make a bigger fuss out of this matter, Gabriel Jesus came to his compatriot’s aid. He was not prepared to have any verbal agreement and pushed the opponents away in order to sort it out.
In the other Semifinal, Peru ran over Chile to set up a clash with the hosts Brazil on Sunday. The Selecao are hoping to break their twelve-year barren trophy run and lift the accolade.
