Umtiti Says France Learned from 2016 Euro Final, Not to Repeat Same Mistakes

ISTRA, Russia – France defender Samuel Umtiti said on Thursday that his team had learned from their 1-0 loss to Portugal at the UEFA Euro 2016 final, stressing they would not make the same mistakes at the upcoming World Cup final clash with Croatia.

On Tuesday, France secured a spot in the World Cup final for the third time with a 1-0 victory over Belgium, thanks to Umtiti’s header off a corner in the 51st minute.

“We know what we did wrong in the Euro final. We also know what we have to do so that it does not happen again,” Barcelona’s 24-year-old defender said during a press conference held in the Russian town of Istra.

France won its first – and so far, only – World Cup 20 years ago, when head coach Didier Deschamps was the captain of the host nation’s squad.

In Sunday’s final, France will face Croatia, which defeated England 2-1 in an extra-time thriller on Wednesday to become the second-smallest nation in history to reach the World Cup final.
