Emiliano Martinez has been elected "Best Goalkeeper" of the 2022 World Cup. After his victory over France in the final (3-3,Pen 4 - 2), Argentina won its 3rd World title after 1978 and 1986. A success in which the former Arsenal goalkeeper has largely contributed to. The 30 year old Argentine international has intervened several times in this tournament to save his team. In the quarter-finals, he took two penalties against Holland to allow his team to qualify for the semi-finals, And in the final, he first beat Randal Kolo Muani, a French striker, in the final minutes before stopping Coman's penalty in the shootout. It helps when you're 1.95m tall.
This is certainly a special moment for Emiliano Martinez. He was at Arsenal for 10 years before breaking into the London club in 2020. Currently at Aston Villa, he has been a perfect replacement for Sergio Romero in the Argentine goal. After the Copa America in 2021, he has won his 2nd title with the Albiceleste.
