Emiliano Martínez Makes a Vulgar Gesture with Golden Glove Trophy
Emiliano Martínez played the hero for Argentina with a huge save in the final moments of extra-time and a penalty save that secured the team’s victory. As a result, the goalkeeper won the Golden Glove award. But when accepting the trophy, he shocked everyone by putting the hand-shaped trophy on his crotch and pumping.
There were plenty of Twitter posts with a video of the moment. The video quickly became viral and gained thousands of views.
Given that the team had won its first World Cup in 36 years, it is unlikely that the player will face discipline from the Argentinian federation. Especially since Martinez is one of the key players to thank for the team’s victory. Instead, everyone involved will likely hope that people forget the incident.
