DANNY MURPHY: Emi Martinez will be under the spotlight for all the wrong reasons after his World Cup antics... every single misstep will be pounced upon by the opposition and their fans

Emiliano Martinez’s legacy is guaranteed after winning the World Cup but in the short term he’s made life tough for himself following his antics in Qatar.

I’m not bothered about the gamesmanship before penalties, I had it from goalkeepers when I played and it’s up to the referee to sort out, but he’s made himself a pantomime villain with the rude gesture on the winners’ podium and Mbappe insults.

Even the slightest mistake he makes for Aston Villa is going to be seized upon by the opposition and their fans. They won’t let him forget and that just adds pressure, which isn’t helpful for any player, let alone goalkeepers.
