The victory for the Argentina national team in the 2022 World Cup final against France made the goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez, angry. The Aston Villa goalkeeper has won the Golden Glove title for his fine performance in saving Argentina’s goal during the 2022 World Cup.
However, conceding three goals in a row by Kylian Mbappe made Martinez feel annoyed. The goalkeeper taunted Mbappe by bringing a baby doll during the World Cup victory celebration in Argentina. The baby doll has a baby face mask.
Kylian Mbappe says he will not waste energy responding to Emiliano Martinez. Kylian Mbappe’s classy answer to the taunts of the Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez shows his maturity side.
During the 2022 World Cup, Kylian Mbappe played impressively by scoring 8 goals. He even scored three goals in the final between Argentina vs France. Unfortunately it was not enough to bring the French National Team to win the World Cup trophy.
The Argentina national team won 4-2 from France on penalties. After previously Argentina and France drew 3-3 equally strong in normal time and extra round. Argentina’s victory made Emilio Martinez arrogant.
Martinez asked his team-mates to observe a minute of silence for Mbappe in the locker room after the match. He also used a baby doll to taunt Mbappe.
Interestingly, the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) player did not respond much to Martinez’s taunts. When asked about the mockery, Mbappe answered wisely.
“That’s not my problem. I don’t have the energy to waste on pointless things like that.” said Mbappe, quoted from 90Min, Friday (30/12/2022).
“I will never digest it. But as I said to my coach and my team-mates, there is no reason why my club should pay for the loss of my national team, they are two different situations.” he added.
“The message is simple, to show that whatever happens to PSG with the national team is a separate matter and I am still determined to bring every trophy to the capital.” Mbappe said again.
Mbappe’s defeat at the 2022 World Cup is certainly a big blow. However, Mbappe chose to remain positive and did not want to respond to ridicule from anyone. He’s just obsessed with being the best sportsman.
Mbappe and Messi’s relationship has not been strained in the least since the controversy. After the match, Mbappe congratulated Messi after the 2022 World Cup match.
