Cristian Romero proved to be exceptional for Argentina yet again, putting in a stellar performance as they crushed Italy in the inaugural Finalissima at Wembley.

A Lionel Messi-inspired Argentina added yet another trophy to their cabinet this week as they thoroughly outclassed Italy to win the Finalissima.

Lautaro Martínez, Ángel Di María and and Paulo Dybala scored the goals as South American champions Argentina produced a masterful performance in the inaugural Finalissima at Wembley.

However, on a night that will understandably see Argentina’s illustrious forwards grab headlines, Cristian Romero will go down as something of an unsung hero.

The centre-back was impeccable in the first half and weathered Italy’s initial storm to keep his side ahead of the game.

The Azzurri did create the occasional chance in the first half but were undone by Romero’s incredible sense of positioning and awareness.

He positioned himself well and used his physicality to his advantage as he dominated in defense and was instrumental in the team keeping cleansheet at Wembley on Wednesday.

The Spurs centre-back pulled off a particularly critical interception to deny Andrea Belotti a tap-in in the first half and didn’t put a wrong foot throughout the match.

The South Americans were visibly superior to their European counterparts and have now extended their unbeaten run to an impressive 32 matches.
