Antoine Griezmann, after Alexis Sanchez's miss in the decisive penalty shoot-out for the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 between Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan, encouraged Memphis Depay, who had scored the first, by calling the Chilean a "coward". The Frenchman's words have caused a lot of controversy even though they were made in a context of euphoria and tension.
