Obscene gestures, inappropriate declarations, off-topic singing, the abominable post-match of Emiliano Martinez

The sequence is stunning and set social networks on fire this Sunday. It’s a bit like a Michaël Youn from the great era masquerading 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 appeared in the middle of the lawn to receive the title of the competition’s best goalkeeper.

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 surprised look of the Qatari organizers of the World Cup. Until then, the Aston Villa keeper had done everything right, signing the tournament’s absolute best, 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 could hardly have been classier in stride. “We controlled the game and they equalized with two crappy shots, swung the strange Albiceleste goalkeeper in the mixed zone. It was our fate to suffer because we scored the 3-2 goal and then the referee gave them another penalty. An astonishing read of probably the most beautiful World Cup final of all time, isn’t it? And as long as you do, to complete his very limited post match, Emiliano Martinez asked his partners in the dressing room a minute’s silence for Kylian Mbappé, as if it were dead. As dead as the hat-trick he inflicted on him in less than 40 minutes.
