France beaten in the final: the gritty gesture of the Argentinian goalkeeper on receiving his trophy


Still decisive during the penalty shootout, the Argentinian Emiliano Martinez made people talk about him after receiving the trophy for best g

Decidedly, Emiliano Martinez will remain one of the great protagonists of this World Cup.

For his performance on the pitch, of course, but also off it.

After responding to Kylian Mbappé at a press conference by saying that he "didn't know enough about football" before the long-awaited World Cup final, the Argentinian goalkeeper put out a good performance against France by stopping Coman's shot on goal and leaving a huge parade in front of Randal Kolo Muani at the end of the extension (120th).

But he didn't stop there since he was talked about on the lawn of Lusail Stadium, after the meeting.

Elected best goalkeeper of the tournament for all of his work, 'Dibu' Martinez went to seek his individual trophy by attempting a rather gravelly stroke of humor.

With a broad smile on his lips, he mimicked a gesture with a sexual connotation, with his metal glove in his hands.

Note that he had already made the same move with the Copa América best goalkeeper trophy, won by his nation in 2021.

“They equalized with two shitty shots”

In remarks reported by the Argentine newspaper TyC Sports, Emiliano Martinez gave his feelings after the final and spoke of the performance of the Blues: “It was a difficult match.

We controlled the game and they equalized with two shitty shots.

It was our destiny to suffer because we scored the 3-2 goal and then the referee gave them another penalty.

I did my job, that's what I dreamed of.

I have no words.

I was calm during the penalty shootout.

At times like these, I always tell my partners to be quiet.

The first shot didn't go well, but after that everything went as we wanted.

I dedicate this World Cup to my family because I come from a very humble region”.

Humble but not very classy.

His demonstration on the podium is looping on social networks where many are outraged by his lack of respect and education.
