Went low: the goalkeeper of the Argentina national team explains the obscene celebration in the World Cup final Israel today


Emiliano Martins, who won the tournament's best goalkeeper award, celebrated with the trophy in a dishonorable way: "The French fans booed me"

Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez was once again at the center of his team's celebrations yesterday when he deflected a dramatic Kolo Muani kick in the closing minutes, then stopped a Kingsley Coman penalty in the deciding kicks and was named the best goalkeeper of the entire tournament. 

After receiving the individual title, Martinez was seen celebrating with the trophy in his groin area in what was seen as an "indecent" celebration by the mighty goalkeeper.

Today (Monday) he explained: "I did it because the French booed me," he said, "Arrogance doesn't work on me."

At the end of the game he said: "Thank God my leg was there. In penalties I did my part, that's what I dreamed of. These are the moments when I have to give my teammates peace after they scored three goals in front of me in three kicks. I had to stop the first kick as well."

Despite this movement, at the end of the game, Martins behaved in a sportsmanlike manner when he approached the disappointed Kylian Mbappe, and together with the country's president, Emmanuel Macron, tried to console the star who was pained by his team's loss despite scoring a hat trick.
