France launch formal complaint against Emi Martinez for taunting Mbappe

France have launched an official complaint against Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez for his taunts at Kylian Mbappe. The goalkeeper has been in the news for pulling off several insulting shots at the French during the 2022 World Cup. 

And recently, he was seen with a toy baby with the France international’s face plastered on. The France Football Federation has now registered a formal complaint, since they believe it is going too far. 

France launch official complaint against Emiliano Martinez 

As quoted by Ouest-France, French president Noel Le Graet wrote to the AFA president, Claudio Tapa about the issue. He said, ‘I wrote to my counterpart from the Argentine Federation, I find these excesses abnormal, in the context of a sports competition, and I find it difficult to understand. This is going too far. Mbappe’s behaviour has been exemplary.’ 

‘The advantage we have in Europe is that we play among ourselves with high-level matches all the time, such as the Nations League for example. When we arrive at the World Cup, we are ready, whereas Brazil and Argentina do not have this level in South America. Football is not as advanced as in Europe. That’s why at the last World Cups, it was always the Europeans who won,’ Mbappe had said before the World Cup.

Argentina mocked Kylian Mbappe in the dressing room after their World Cup win as well. They held a minute of silence for him after their win, which was the first incident in the series of blows against the 24-year-old.
