Many consider Argentina to be the strongest contender for the most prestigious football competition in the star team, which is headed by seven-time winner of the Golden Ball Lionel Messi.
Martinez was delighted with the news of his choice and posted a heartfelt message on social media in which he acknowledged his well-deserved challenge.
The United central defender wrote: “I dreamed about it so much, I visualized it, I asked for it, I wanted it so much and I felt so much that today this huge dream that I had since childhood is coming true.”.
“I remember when my parents gave me a national team T-shirt and I was so happy that I was going to play ball next door, imagining that I was one of the players.”
He added: “I am eternally grateful to the most important people in my life who know that they are always in my heart! Let’s all unite and unite as never before. Let’s go to Argentina.”

Undoubtedly, Martinez will be the mainstay of Albiceletes during the tournament.
He and Tottenham defender Cuti Romero have created an incredible partnership for the national team and will become the backbone of the defenders.
Martinez has been nothing short of a brilliant player for the Red Devils and Argentina will benefit immensely from his services.
Let’s hope that the 24-year-old will make a positive contribution and help Argentina win the trophy.
