The sequence is mind-blowing and set social networks on fire this Sunday. It’s a bit as if a Michaël Youn of the great era disguised himself as sex in a sequence of Midnight Express. In the very cozy setting of the trophy ceremonies for this World Cup, the Argentinian Emiliano Martinez thus showed up in the middle of the lawn to receive the title of the best goalkeeper of the competition.
It was there that he launched into a very embarrassing, and downright obscene delirium, by performing a gesture with a sexual connotation with his glove-shaped trophy. All in front of the somewhat taken aback gaze of the Qatari organizers of the World Cup. Until then, the Aston Villa goalkeeper had done everything right, signing THE absolute save of the tournament, 3-3 against Randal Kolo Muani, then stopping Kingsley Coman’s shot on goal.
It remains to be seen whether his gesture could earn him sanctions, while his post-match statements were hardly classier in stride. “We controlled the match and they equalized with two shitty shots, swung the strange Albiceleste goalkeeper in the mixed zone. It was our destiny to suffer because we scored the 3-2 goal and then the referee gave them another penalty. An astonishing reading of probably the most beautiful World Cup final of all time, no? And as long as you do, to complete his very limited post-match, Emiliano Martinez asked his partners in the locker room a minute of silence for Kylian Mbappé, as if it were dead. As dead as the hat-trick he inflicted on him in less than 40 minutes.
