Kylian Mbappe was target of ridicule during Argentina’s 2022 World Cup victory parade, with goalkeeper Emiliano ‘Dibu’ Martinez once again mocking the PSG star.
The celebrations continue in Argentina as the national team won their first World Cup title in 36 years in Qatar on Sunday. While many are happy to see Lionel Messi with the trophy, French star Kylian Mbappe continues to be the target of derision from the Argentinians.
The Paris Saint-Germain superstar produced a fantastic performance at Qatar 2022 – especially in the grand final, scoring a hat-trick as well as a penalty in the shoot-out. Still, some seem to enjoy making fun of him.
Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, for example, dedicated a song to Mbappe during his team’s post-match dressing room celebrations. But it didn’t stop there as he took the mockery to the next level during Argentina’s victory parade.

Dibu was seen holding a toy baby with a photo of Mbappe’s face on it during Argentina’s open top bus parade, which may have been fun for the Argentine fans but quite annoying and disrespectful for Mbappe and the French people.
The night before, when Argentina were heading to the AFA training facilities only minutes after landing in the country, Messi was thrown a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toy.
