The Atletico Madrid midfielder responded to critics of his performance in Argentina’s matchday one defeat to Saudi Arabia at the tournament in rather explosive fashion, amid the celebrations.
Speaking on Nicolas Otamendi’s Instagram live after the win, De Paul stated: “We are in the history forever. Whoever doubted me, s*ck my d*ck.”
In more family friendly fashion, he told reporters: “We suffered a lot, but it feels so good. We were born to suffer, it hardens us, as we are going to suffer all our lives. We always carry the flag everywhere; I hope our fans are as happy as we are.”
De Paul was not the only Argentine player to get slightly inappropriate on Sunday.
The Aston Villa shot-stopper collected the Golden Glove trophy, after his team beat France on penalties.
Despite conceding three goals in the final, Martinez had previously kept three clean sheets - more than any other ‘keeper at the tournament.
When he collected a trophy for being the best goalkeeper at the World Cup, Martinez made a lewd gesture - holding the trophy to his crotch.
