The goalkeeper of Argentina and Aston Villa showed himself from an unexpected side.
When the Argentina national team defeated the French team in the World Cup final in Qatar, the camera caught an exhausted Kylian Mbappe, who was sitting on the lawn. He was approached by one of the heroes of the final – goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez. He said something to the Frenchman and was obviously trying to console him. Today, Martinez revealed what he said.
“I told him to get up and think about the future, that he should not lie on the pitch, but be proud of the game he played, and it’s true,” Martinez told TyC Sports, “He scored four goals for me (three during the game and one penalty shootout ). The one who really needs to lie on the lawn is me.”
The Argentina and Aston Villa goalkeeper became the hero of the penalty shoot-out – he saved Kingsley Coman’s shot and made Aurélien Tchouameni miss. Kylian Mbappé scored a hat-trick in the final (two times he converted a penalty).
Emiliano Martinez is also remembered for his strange antics. He often provoked the players, especially during penalty kicks. Also, the Argentinean obscenely posed with the Golden Glove, which he was awarded for the title of the best goalkeeper of the tournament. In addition, Amy “buried” Mbappe in the locker room, and in Argentina mocked his figure.
