Emiliano Martinez Dared Cristiano Ronaldo To Take 92nd Minute Penalty Before Getting In Bruno Fernandes' Head

Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez dared Cristiano Ronaldo to take the 92nd minute spot-kick Manchester United were awarded at Old Trafford.

Mere minutes after scoring the opener for the visitors, Kortney Hause gave away a penalty after handling in the area.

Martinez, full of confidence, pointed at Ronaldo and shouted "You take it!" at the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

But Ronaldo, despite boasting an incredible record from 12 yards for club and country, did not step up.

Instead, United's regular penalty taker Bruno Fernandes assumed duties and Martinez did his customary trash talking.

Fernandes surprised everyone by moving away from his usual technique - skying the ball over the bar and into the Stretford End.

After Fernandes missed the target for the first time in his career, Martinez proceeded to turn around and perform a humping dance right in front of the United supporters.

Martinez and Villa held on for a vital clean sheet and victory, but something tells us that Ronaldo will be taking the next penalty United are given.

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Martinez has developed quite the knack of being a massive s**thouse when it comes to penalties.

In the Copa America semi-final penalty shoot-out vs Colombia in July, Martinez got in Yerry Mina's head with his trash-talking.

"You're nervous, eh?" Martinez said.

"I can tell you're nervous. I know where you're going to shoot. Watch and see how I'm gonna eat you up."

Martinez's denial of Mina was one of three penalty saves that led to Argentina progressing to the final against Brazil, where they won 1-0 to lift the trophy.
