FIFA has confirmed that an investigation into the Argentina football association’s actions surrounding the World Cup final has been launched.

Argentina won on penalties after a 3-3 tie at Lusail Stadium in Qatar in December. In the shootout, goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez saved a penalty from Kingsley Coman, and Aurelien Tchouameni was also off-target after being distracted by the Aston Villa stopper.

The tense game had several flashpoints both before and after the penalties, with Martinez drawing criticism for his post-victory antics. Now, nearly a month after Argentina’s victory, more retaliation is possible.

“The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has opened proceedings against the Argentinian Football Association for potential violations of FIFA Disciplinary Code articles 11 (Offensive behavior and violations of the principles of fair play) and 12 (Misconduct of players and officials), as well as article 44 of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM Regulations in conjunction with the Media and Marketing Regulations for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM, during the Argentina v. Fr case.”

According to the latest disciplinary update from the governing body, Argentina is not the only national FA in trouble. The Croatian FA has also been charged with “potential violations of articles 13 (Discrimination) and 16 (Order and security at matches) of the FIFA Disciplinary Code during Croatia v. Morocco FIFA World CupTM match,” according to FIFA. Croatia and Morocco played to a draw in the group stage before meeting again in the third-place play-off.

FIFA has also imposed fines on three football associations for their actions during the group stage. Ecuador, Mexico, and Serbia have all been fined between CHF20,000 (£17,000) and CHF100,000, with all three federations also receiving partial or full stadium bans.

Martinez has since returned to club duty after serving as Argentina’s goalkeeper during their Copa America triumph in 2021. The 30-year-old made his Aston Villa debut against Wolves on January 4 and also appeared in Friday’s win over Leeds.

Hugo Lloris of Tottenham Hotspur and France aimed his opposite number after announcing his international retirement. Lloris was instrumental in France’s victory in 2018, but he will be unable to repeat the feat in 2022.

“There are some things I am unable to do. Embarrassing myself in goal, rattling my opponent, and crossing the line… I simply cannot do that “The veteran confirmed his 145th appearance for Les Bleus would be his last.

“I’m far too rational and honest a man to go that route. I don’t know how to win like that, but I also don’t want to lose like that.”
