Arsenal goalkeeper Emi Martinez was emotional after playing his role in Saturday's FA Cup triumph.

Martinez has impressed in between the sticks in recent weeks and made a crucial save to deny Christian Pulisic in the first half to keep the score at 1-0.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's double helped Arsenal complete the turnaround to seal their 14th FA Cup and qualify for the Europa League next season.

"I can't believe it. My family... I can't really talk sorry," he said to BBC Sport.

After composing himself, Martinez added: "I said to him [Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang] before the game, you are going to win us the game. He delivered."

"Big respect for this man [Martinez]. We enjoyed today. We are so happy," the Gabon international said.

"As you can see, Emi is crying. That shows, that winning this game and this trophy makes us so happy."
