The fact that two Colombians like Yerry Mina and Jhon Jáder Durán did not have minutes on the field was not the only attraction of the match. Attention was also focused on the confrontation between Yerry Mina and Emiliano ‘Dibu’ Martínez, who met again in the English Premier League after the controversies that occurred during the 2021 Copa América.
During the match at Goodison Park, Yerry Mina and Emiliano ‘Dibu’ Martínez had a brief encounter that lasted only three seconds, in which they exchanged glances of respect, smiles and a handshake, as well as a symbolic gesture of union by joining her cheeks. This meeting was important due to the mental games that the Argentine goalkeeper used during the semifinals of the Copa América in Brazil-2021 to distract Yerry Mina.
