FIFA disciplinary action for extravagant victory celebrations; A heavy blow to Argentina
FIFA disciplinary action against Argentine football for excessive victory celebration after Qatar’s World Cup victory. A month after winning the World Cup, FIFA started fighting against Argentina.
According to the reports, FIFA has initiated proceedings for unacceptable behavior and breach of competition principles (Article 11) and misconduct by players and officials (Article 12).
“The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has initiated proceedings against the Argentine Football Association for violating Articles 11 and 12 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code and Article 44 of the World Cup,” various media reported.
After the victory in the final, Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez mocked Mbappe in different ways, which led to a big controversy.
Martinez, who won the Golden Glove for the best goalkeeper, started by making obscene gestures towards the French players at the referee’s stage.
Then, while celebrating the victory in the dressing room, Mbappe was silenced by mocking him and creating a big controversy.
Even after returning to Argentina, Martinez’s fury did not subside. Emi appeared at the Victory Parade in Buenos Aires with a baby doll bearing Mbappe’s face. Martinez’s controversial celebration included Mbappe’s photo being pasted in place of the doll’s face.
The French Football Federation has filed a complaint against Emiliano Martinez. The FFF said they have filed a complaint with the authorities to take action against Martinez and will meet with the president of the Argentine Football Association to discuss the situation.
