Aston Villa's Emi Martinez saved three penalties in Argentina's shoot-out victory over Colombia last night. Martinez opened the scoring in the first half after an assist from Messi and Colombia made it 1-1in the second half which led to penalty shootout.
Colombia players received six yellow cards against Argentina, and all six of them came after several rough tackles on Messi. They succeeded in hurting his leg, but Argentina got the victory.
However according to viral video online showed how Lionel Messi yelled at Colombia defender Yerry Mina after the defender penalty was saved.
Messi shouted “Dance now, go on, dance now, dance now!”. This is the Messi all of Argentina wants to see, fired up and in it. Mina had danced after scoring the winning penalty for Colombia in the Quarter-Finals against Uruguay.

The Yerry Mina penalty from last night is great entertainment. Emi Martínez tries to get into his head before it, then the penalty is saved, and then Messi, very fired up, heckling him on his way back with “Dance now!” Messi and Mina were teammates.
Messi gets so much grief playing for Argentina but this Messi-cam of the shootout last night shows how much it means to him and what a leader he is. Would be brilliant if Argentina can do it in the final against Brazil.
