‘Punctional Hero’.

On the 19th, ESPN of the United States introduced goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez (30, Aston Villa), who led Argentina to win the World Cup in Qatar with a spirited save show. After drawing 3-3 with France in overtime in the final, Argentina won 4-2 in the penalty shootout and lifted the World Cup trophy for the first time in 36 years. In the penalty shootout, Martinez saved Argentina’s victory by blocking a shot by France’s second kicker Kingsle Coman and then inducing a miss by third kicker Aurelien Chuameni. Martinez was awarded the Golden Glove for the best goalkeeper at the ceremony. “I just did what I had to do,” said Martinez. There was no shaking throughout the penalty shootout,” he said. 스포츠토토

England’s Football London evaluated, “Martinez’s psychological warfare stood out in the penalty shootout.” Martinez threw the ball from Chua Meni’s hand to the far right of the penalty box as he kicked. It was a kind of provocation. It is common for the goalkeeper to pass the ball to the next kicker. Chua Meni picked up the ball far away with an absurd expression. He lost 19 seconds in the process. The British BBC said, “Martinez made Chuameni, who was under a lot of pressure, do something unexpected. This had an effect on Chua Meni (losing his composure) and losing the game.” Martinez broke the spirit of the French team by performing a dance ceremony when Chuameni missed. Football London said, “Martinez’s psychological warfare worked.”

However, Martinez was criticized for performing an obscene ceremony at the awards ceremony. He held his trophy to his lower abdomen. Spain’s Marca criticized, saying, “Martinez’s behavior would have made tournament officials uncomfortable.
