Muani was through one-on-one but Martinez stretched out his left leg to keep the score level at 3-3.

The keeper was also the hero in the shoot-out after saving Kinglsey Coman’s spot-kick and Gomez paid tribute to his team-mate.

The Sevilla star, 34, unveiled a series of World Cup tattoos in a recent Instagram post.

One depicts Martinez saving Muani’s strike as well as the minute and second it happened in.

Martinez was very appreciative of the gesture and left a touching comment under the forward’s post.

Gomez got two other tattoos – one of the World Cup trophy and one of his Argentina shirt and number 17.

Argentina defender Nicolas Tagliafico told Gomez that he “loved” his new ink which complements his existing tattoos, inluding an elephant.
