Emiliano Martinez made spectacular saves in the World Cup tournament to keep Argentina in the game and when he received the best keeper award , his rude celebration was a topic of discussion on social media. Martinez and Messi are the real heroes of the Argentina triumph. While Messi was making assists and scoring , Martinez was making saves such as when he came one on one with Kolo Muani. A late minute goal in extra time that could have sealed the victory for the French team in the feisty match. He then saved from Kingsley Coman in the penalty shootout to ensure his nation secured a third World Cup triumph with Argentina winning 4-2 on penalties after a 3-3 draw. And French fans didn’t like his guts. So when he got his awards he decided to make obscene gestures towards them. “I did it because the French booed me. Pride does not work with me,” he told Argentine radio station La Red. “We suffered a lot. We thought we were in control but they managed to come back,’ he added. “It was a very complicated game. Our destiny was to suffer. “They had one last chance to win [Kolo Muani’s late shot]. Luckily I was able to stop it with my foot. “This is a moment I’ve always dreamed of living, I have no words for it. I left very young for England and I would like to dedicate this victory to my family.”
