Kylian Mbappe may not consider Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez as a friend, but he certainly seems to have learnt how to celebrate from the World Cup winner.

The Aston Villa goalkeeper at the time explained his actions were in response to boos from disappointed French supporters inside the ground.

FIFA then later announced that it was launching an investigation into the actions of the Argentina side after they beat France on penalties to win the 2022 World Cup final.

However, despite being the thorn in Mbappe and France’s side during the final in Qatar, Mbappe has been caught on camera appearing to celebrate with another trophy in similar fashion.
