Umtiti was one of the main protagonists during France's win against Germany. The centre-back proved reassuring at any time and resisted the German offensive to help out his team in order to keep a clean sheet.

The new Barça signing started his second game in the European Championships and he seemed euphoric after the game: "We've been very good in defence. For me, to play and to win without conceding a goal is an fantastic thing, I leave very satisfied. I feel very good, I try to keep calm and trust my qualities, like I have always done."

Aged 22 only, the Frenchman looked way more experienced and he didn't show any bit of doubt despite playing the Euros' semi-finals. The centre-back explained one of the keys to his high level: "When you play with great players, you adapt quickly."

The French defender hopes now to be starting in Sunday's final against Portugal to win his first trophy with the national team. Deschamps is very satisfied with his performance and Umtiti also was praised by his teammates.
