Leo Díaz and a revelation about Edwin Cardona
River Plate and Boca Juniors were going to star in one more match of the Argentine classic for the quarterfinals of the Professional League Cup on May 16 of this year. However, in the previous one of this match, the ‘Millionaires’ suffered casualties due to an outbreak of coronavirus cases in the team. His four goalkeepers (Germán Lux, Enrique Bologna, Franco Petroli and Franco Armani) were infected and Marcelo Gallardo put all his trust in the youthful Leo Díaz.
The 21-year-old novice goalkeeper had a great performance in his debut match — he saved two shots at Tevez — which finished level (1-1) in the 90 minutes. In the penalty shootout he would star in a curious scene. In the third shot, Edwin Cardona wanted to sting the ball, but he waited for it and saved the ball.
The ‘Xeneizes’ would go to the semifinals and the young goalkeeper remembers that experience with the Colombian footballer with great disgust. “When Cardona took the penalty, I swear I wanted to throw the ball in his face. In the neighborhood I would have. Was it my debut and is it coming to bite me? ”, He said in conversation with Rock and River.
