Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez explained his celebration with his outrageous reaction after being awarded the World Cup Golden Glove.

Then he saved from Kingsley Coman in the penalty shootout to secure his country’s victory in the World Cup for the third time, with Argentina winning 4-2 on penalties after a 3-3 draw.

After keeping three clean sheets in Qatar, he was named the best goalkeeper of the tournament.

However, he was seen making a rude gesture with his award, as he kept it on his private parts.

However, the Argentine goalkeeper has since revealed that he did so due to the fact that France fans were booing him throughout the match.

“I did it because the French booed me. Pride doesn’t work for me,” he told Argentine radio station La Red.

Martinez came into his own during the penalty shootout and gestured to the fans to make more noise after Koeman’s penalty was saved.

The Aston Villa goalkeeper admitted France pushed his team all the way, as they kept coming back into the game.

We have suffered so much. We thought we were in control but they managed to come back.

“It was a very complicated game. We were destined to suffer.

They had one last chance to win [Kolo Muani’s late shot]. Fortunately I managed to stop him with my feet.

“This is a moment I have always dreamed of, I have no words for it. I left very young for England and would like to dedicate this victory to my family.”
