Since their title of world champion obtained against France on penalties, the Argentinians have not ceased to be talked about…and badly. Insults against players from the France team, racism against Kylian Mbappé, or even obscene gestures, are the Argentines tarnishing the third star obtained?
Argentinians have they fallen into ridicule? Three days after their crowning in the final of the World Cup 2022 against France, some Albiceleste players are stepping up their provocations against the Blues and in particular Kylian Mbappé. It makes you wonder if they would rather celebrate their victory against the Paris Saint-Germain striker than their third star.
Thus, Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez paraded through the streets of Buenos Aires with a doll on which he carefully stuck the face of Kylian Mbappé. A false coffin in the name of the striker of the France team was also seen in the streets of Buenos Aires.
Emiliano Martinez is becoming his own caricature. Instead of parading, he makes the puppet with his doll bearing the image of Mbappé. Despicable and disrespectful pic.twitter.com/q5D7NtVnGA

A new provocation from the doorman of Aston Villa after that of the locker room, Sunday after the final. In a video shared on social media, as Lionel Messi’s teammates celebrate their third star in song, the Argentina goalkeeper suddenly asks his teammates to shut up and do a minute ‘for Mbappé’. Ironically, the prodigy of the Blues still scored a hat-trick in this final … to this goalkeeper.

Present in the same locker room, former international Sergio Agüero also let go by insulting midfielder Eduardo Camavinga with “head of a head”.

In addition to these provocations and insults which are already too much, this same Emiliano Martinez had already been talked about during the presentation of the titles after the final. Elected best goalkeeper of the competition, the Argentinian goalkeeper received a mini statuette in the shape of a glove. On the podium in the middle of the Lusail stadium, the latter considered it appropriate to position his trophy at the height of his pubis by marking a timeout. An inappropriate or even obscene gesture that shocked.

So can we speak of a budding rivalry between Argentina and France? Many wonder about the reunion between French and Argentinians at Paris Saint-Germain, and in particular those between Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé. Indeed, “la Pulga” was alongside Emiliano Martinez when he appeared with the baby.
