“May passion lead you to glory” Argentina World Cup hero Emiliano Martinez reveals new tattoo with heartfelt message.

Emiliano Martinez made the highest save of his career in the dying seconds of extra time, preventing France forward Muani from  scoring the game-winning goal with an incredible 123rd-minute block.


That brilliant save with his left leg persuaded a penalty shootout, where he stunned Aurelien Tchouameni and Kingsley Coman to help Argentina win the trophy.

During La Albiceleste’s open-top bus parade, the 30-year-old mocked Kylian Mbappe by instructing his teammates to observe “a minute of silence” for the Frenchforward before carrying around a doll with Mbappe’s face taped to it.

Martinez, a week after his antics, has  decided to get a tattoo of the World Cup  trophy on his left leg as a constant reminder of his World Cup victory.

The tattoo, which features Argentina’s upto date 3-star log, interprets “Que la pasión te lleve a la gloria,” which corresponds to  “May passion lead you to glory.”

The template is exactly in the identical position as his miraculous save against  Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Muani.

Although, apart from this, Unai Emery, the manager of Aston Villa, did not appear to be impressed with his player’s actions in mocking Mbappe and France and some wild gestures.

The Spaniard said in a press conference ahead of Villa’s Premier League match against Liverpool that he will speak with the former Arsenal goalkeeper about “some” of his celebrations.

“When you have a big emotion, sometimes it’s difficult to control it,” Emery said.

“I will speak to him next week about some of the celebrations but I need to respect that he’s with his national team right now. When he’s back with us we can speak about it.”
