The federation has condemned the racist abuse of France's World Cup champions' players.
After the French football team lost the World Cup final to Argentina on penalties on Sunday, the French Football Federation (FFF) condemned the racial abuse aimed at the
players online and promised to take action.Isabelle Rome, the French minister in charge of gender equality, voiced outrage over the online abuse, naming Kylian Mbappe and Kingsley
Coman as two of the targets.Midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni who, like Coman, missed a penalty in the game-winning shootout, was reportedly a target as well, according to the BBC.
Coman's penalty kick was saved by Argentina's Emiliano Martinez, while Tchouameni missed the goal as France failed to defend their 2018 World Cup championship.
The FFF announced on Twitter that "many players of the French national team were subjected to inappropriate racist and cruel comments on social networks" after the World Cup final.
The FFF strongly disapproves and intends to lodge a formal complaint against the writers of these works.
Coman's club, Bayern Munich, also issued a statement earlier in support of the 26-year-old, strongly denouncing the racist slurs made against him.
The King, know that the FC Bayern family is rooting for you. Neither sport nor society has a place for racism, Bayern tweeted.
France's sports minister Amelie Oudea-Castera tweeted her solidarity with the mistreated athletes, stating such hateful remarks "have no place in soccer or anywhere else."
