The award went to Damian Martinez, also from Argentina. Although he failed to stop Mbappe from three penalties, he still conquered other French players with good performances. If Martinez hadn't blocked Mouani's shot in the countdown of overtime, Argentina would have been beaten by France. Martinez also performed well in the quarter-final penalty shootout against the Netherlands. This cup is the first time for Martinez to participate in the World Cup, and he is also the first South American goalkeeper in history to win the World Cup Golden Glove Award.
