Breaking News ! Saturday, August 1, 2020, is a day that will live long in the memory of Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez. Having stepped out of the cold to fill in for the injured Bernd Leno in recent weeks, the Argentine got the chance to line-up in one of the most famous fixtures in world football on Saturday, helping Arsenal defeat Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley to lift the FA Cup for the 14th time in their rich and colourful history. Having fallen behind to Christian Pulisic's fifth-minute opener, it looked as though Mikel Arteta's side were set for a long afternoon. However, the Gunners drew themselves level when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tucked away a 28th-minute penalty after being hauled down inside the penalty area by Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

The final 23 minutes of the contest, following Aubameyang's second, though, did not pass without incident, as Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic was controversially sent-off for a second bookable offence, a decision which left Blues chief Frank Lampard scathing with referee Anthony Taylor. On 81 minutes, another flashpoint arose, this time concerning Martinez.

. With the incident not having had any impact on Arsenal's quest to lay their hands on the FA Cup for the second time in four years, Martinez has now seen the funny side of the incident, taking to social media to share a rather fitting joke. At the time of when Martinez claimed the ball inside the penalty area, the Wembley advertising boards were displaying an advert about the much-loved video game Pokemon.

On Instagram, Martinez, sharing a picture of him catching the ball, said: "My best moment at Wembley was catching a Pokemon. #Pikachu." Instagram Martinez had clearly seen the funny side of the incident, as he reflected on an evening that will live long in his memory. He had worked incredibly hard to be able to live that moment and it clearly meant everything to him when he broke down in an interview with BBC Sport following the full-time whistle.
