A reporter mistook Defensa y Justicia goalkeeper Ezequiel Unsain for forward Braian Romero and continued asking him the wrong questions even when corrected.
The farcical scene took place at a press conference following the Argentine side’s 1-1 Copa Libertadores draw with Universitario on Thursday.
Se confundieron a Unsain con Brian Romero e igual le hicieron las preguntas que tenían preparadas para el nueve. Insólito. pic.twitter.com/2JJ4CBzlao

Romero, on loan from Independiente, was not present at the time – but one journalist was undeterred in his quest to get quotes from the goal-scorer.
We start the press conference with Braian Romero. Braian, how are you?
He is then told it’s not him but his teammate, which Ezequiel himself confirms.
Nevertheless, and amidst further corrections from fellow members of the press, he went on:
Today you started and scored for a tie. How significant is that goal after missing several games?
Remaining professional, Ezequiel replied:
I will speak for him a little. I imagine he feels good. Obviously it’s always fundamental for a forward to score goals.
