XtraTime Web Desk: Less than three months to go for the all awaited FIFA World Cup and the host country is already in some serious trouble. The depth of the controversy has now forced FIFA to intervene the entire trouble.

Two French national team players have been targeted with racial abuse on the host’s turf. The French players are midfielder Paul Pogba and their young sensation Kylian Mbappe. ‘Monkey chants’ were reportedly hurled by the Russian fans as the hosts sucummbed to a 3-1 loss. FIFA said on Wednesday in a statement that it was collecting evidence and would contact the Anti-discrimination Fare Network which helps World soccer’s governing body investigate racism cases. “FIFA is collecting the different match reports and potential evidence in regards to the discriminatory incident reported in the media,” FIFA said in a statement. “Until we have evaluated all information available, we cannot comment further.”
