Celebration of the coronation of Emiliano Martinez – Argentina – France

The French Football Federation has called on FIFA to punish Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez for his actions at the 2022 World Cup final.

Martinez celebrated provocatively during Argentina’s World Cup crowning and mentioned Kylian Mbappe, the France star, in more than one shot.

The first is in the dressing room and he appeared in a video clip, abruptly stopping the celebrations and shouting loudly: “A minute’s silence for the dead Mbappe.”

And Martinez’s controversial actions continued during the national team’s celebration in Argentina, when he appeared with dolls of a crying Mbappe in his hands.

“I wrote to the president of the Argentine Football Association about the behavior of Emiliano Martinez, it was out of the ordinary,” Noel Le Graet, president of the French Football Federation, told Ouest-France.

He added: “Mbappe handled it all very calmly, it’s exemplary behavior from him.”

Martinez was not happy with these controversial behaviours, but also celebrated in disgraceful fashion on the podium as he received the tournament’s best goalkeeper award.

“I did it because the French were booing me,” Martinez explained to Argentine radio station La Rede as to why he celebrated this way.

“I can’t stand arrogance,” he added.

Martinez saved a huge chance in the fourth minute of stoppage time against Randall Kolo Mwani, which was enough for his side to lose.

Martinez later saved Kingsley Coman’s free-kick and was tipped wide by Aurelien Choiameny’s shot wide of goal.

It is worth noting that Martinez was also decisive in the penalty shootout in the quarter-finals against the Netherlands and saved a dangerous chance in the last minute against Australia in the final cost.
