EMI MARTINEZ’s “S***house” theatrics helped Argentina beat France on penalties in the World Cup final.
The exciting duel ended after a brilliant 3:3 draw in Qatar on penalties.
Kylian Mbappe coolly pocketed France’s first penalty after also beating Martinez twice from 12 meters in the 120 minutes.
But Mbappe’s teammates couldn’t handle Martinez’s antics.
The wobbling, proud Aston Villa goalkeeper saved Kingsley Coman’s penalty.
He then won a mind games battle with Aurelien Tchouameni to bring Argentina close to the finish line.
Tchouameni, 22, had to wait ages to execute his penalty after Martinez threw the ball away.
The referee booked the stopper for his unsportsmanlike conduct – but the damage was done.
The France midfielder missed the target completely and Martinez performed a dance in celebration.
Randal Kolo Muani managed to take France’s next penalty home.

But Gonzalo Montiel then had the opportunity to win the World Cup for Argentina – sending Hugo Lloris down the wrong path to lead his country to dreamland.
Martinez, 30, had also made a crucial stop to deny Kolo Muani a one-on-one in the final seconds of overtime.
And after his shootings, fans couldn’t help but point out his incredible role in Argentina’s victory.
One wrote: “I love Emiliano Martinez’s biggest s***house in football.”
While a second tweeted: “Emi Martinez is a real s***house and I absolutely love it”
A third gushed: “Emi Martinez what a world class home.”
But a fourth was keen to point out: “Emi Martinez picks up Kylian Mbappe off the floor after the game.
“Emi can be a huge s***house but that was a touch of class from our goalkeeper.”
The stopper was awarded the Golden Glove for his post-game performance.
