Argentina fan had a genius fix after massive error in Emiliano Martinez World Cup tattoo
| Last updated
An Argentina fan managed to fix her World Cup tattoo dedicated to Emiliano Martinez after spotting a glaring error.
Martinez played a massive role in La Albiceleste becoming world champions for the first time since 1986 earlier this month.
His vital save from Randal Kolo Muani against France in extra time of the final with the scores at 3-3 ensured the game would go to penalties.
The Aston Villa goalkeeper saved from Kingsley Coman in the shootout as Argentina ran out 4-2 winners.
Martinez received the Golden Glove award before the trophy lift, acknowledging him as the tournament's best shot-stopper.
He's become an icon in his home country after several fine performances and showings of s**thousery whenever possible.
One supporter decided to get a tattoo commemorating the biggest moment in Argentine football since 1986.
She had two goalkeeper gloves tattooed on her back with ribbons the colour of Argentina's flag behind them. Above the gloves were three stars and, interestingly, 'Dibu Fernandez'.
For those who only watch Premier League football, 'Dibu' is Martinez's nickname when with the Argentina team. The only Fernandez in Argentina's 26-man squad was Enzo Fernandez, who plays as a midfielder.
She decided to make an addition which covered up the mistake and added more Martinez to the tattoo.
To cover the mistake, she added an image of Martinez making a save above the three stars and coloured it in black.
'Dibu Martinez' was placed in the top right, right above the Argentina ribbons. The after picture proves how well it fits in.
Despite his heroics in Qatar, Martinez's antics have managed to frustrate Villa manager Unai Emery.
Reports last week claimed Emery is keen to sell the 30-year-old in the January transfer window after being 'unimpressed' with his temperament.
Speaking ahead of Monday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, Emery confirmed he'd discuss Martinez's behaviour following Argentina's World Cup win.
He frequently trolled France attacker Kylian Mbappe, despite the Paris Saint-Germain superstar scoring a hat-trick in the game.
"When you have big emotion, sometimes it is difficult to control it," Emery said.
"I will speak to him next week about some celebrations but I respect that he is now under the national team and when he will be with us, he is our responsibility then we can speak about it. We are so proud of him. He won the World Cup with his national team and it's amazing."
