Emiliano Martinez, the goalie for Argentina, has chosen to get a new tattoo, which may be a reference to his heroic last-second stop of Kolo Muani in the World Cup final.
In the waning seconds of extra time, Martinez made the save of a lifetime when he somehow blocked France striker Muani from scoring the game-winning goal.
He made an outstanding save with his left leg to force a penalty shootout, where he upset players like Kingsley Coman and Aurelien Tchouameni to help Argentina win the match.
The 30-year-old then carried around a doll with Kylian Mbappe‘s face glued to it during La Albiceleste’s open-top bus parade, ordering his teammates to observe “a minute of silence” for the French striker.
A week after his shenanigans, Martinez has made the decision to get a tattoo of the World Cup trophy on his left leg as a lasting remembrance of his victory.
The design is actually positioned exactly where he made his save against Muani.
Before Martinez shared a photo of the finished inking on his Instagram page, Juan Pablo Skunca, an Argentine tattoo artist, worked on the project for several hours.
The tattoo reads “Que la pasión te lleve a la gloria,” which translates to “May passion lead you to greatness,” and features Argentina’s most recent 3-star log.
