A member of FIFA's technical study group, speaking informally to a reporter, put it like this: "If he had a different name on the back of his shirt, he would not be playing. He has not been at his level in this tournament." Not long thereafter, France boss Didier Deschamps was asked to sum up the very same player's performance. He called him "monstrous," adding that the player in question was "strong, creative, accurate, intelligent and one of...

FIFA may expand 2022 World Cup in Qatar
