Emiliano Martinez, the goalie for Argentina, explained the reasoning for the Obscene Gesture
Srinagar: Emiliano Martinez, the star goalkeeper for Argentina who is now under criticism for making an offensive gesture at the FIFA World Cup 2022 trophy ceremony following the final match versus France in Doha on Sunday, has provided an explanation for his actions.
On the presentation stage, after Emiliano Martinez had been awarded the Golden Glove for being the Best Goalkeeper of the FIFA World Cup 2022, he was observed making an inappropriate hand motion.
Although the Argentina goalkeeper received a lot of plaudits for his exploits between the sticks during the penalty shootout, a lot of former football players and football commentators didn’t agree with the gesture he made after being handed the Golden Glove. Martinez has now provided an explanation for why he acted in that manner.
According to a story that was published in the New York Post, Martinez provided the justification for his actions to the Argentine radio station La Red. He explained himself by saying, “The French booed me, so I did it.” He continued by saying, “Pride does not work with me.” [Citation needed]
Martinez, who is 30 years old, made a save against Kingsley Coman during Argentina’s 4-2 victory in the shootout after the exciting championship game concluded in extra time with a score of 3-3.
According to the goalkeeper for Aston Villa, “it was our fate to suffer,” although the other team did fight back and tie the score throughout the game. “It was a really tough encounter.”
“I have accomplished all that I have worked so hard for. I am at a loss for what to say. During the penalty shoot-off, I was able to keep a level head, and everything turned out the way we had hoped.
