In case you thought winning the World Cup would make Emi Martinez humble, you were wrong, as he poked fun at Kylian Mbappe in the celebrations.

In arguably the greatest World Cup final of all time, it was Argentina who won their first World Cup in 36 years following a penalty shoot-out win over France.

Not only in Argentina, but football fans across the world rejoiced as Lionel Messi cemented his place in history with his long awaited World Cup medal.

Key to Messi and Argentina's success was Emi Martinez, who not for the first time in this tournament, made crucial saves to keep Argentina's dream alive.

Having only made his international debut in 2021, the Aston Villa goalkeeper has been crucial during Lionel Scaloni's time in charge.

The Aston Villa goalkeeper made another save in a penalty shoot-out to deny Kingsley Coman, with his mind games also playing a part.
