"It's me that scored", Umtiti said, "but we all delivered a big game".
"FIFA's priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation and we will look into finding a new opportunity to invite the boys to a Federation Internationale de Football Association event to share with them a moment of communion and celebration", a spokesman said.More news: Cardi B countersuing her ex-manager for $15M
