World Cup champion Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez had won the hearts of the people of Bangladesh by catching the opponent's shot under the goal post like a hawk in the World Cup in Qatar, so he was nicknamed “Bajpakhi” (hawk) by Bangladeshis.

Martinez expressed his joy to be introduced as hawk, said State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak on Monday.

The state minister said: “Emiliano Martinez, the World Cup-winning goalkeeper of Argentina, has come to visit Bangladesh, impressed by the love of Argentina fans in Bangladesh. He is very happy and proud to introduce himself by the name given by the people of Bangladesh – Hawk.”

“He wants to come back to Bangladesh, play football with Bangladesh and spend time with Bangladeshi people. Apart from being the best goalkeeper in the world, Martinez is also a great person,” he added.
