France president invites an Arsenal player to the World Cup final
- French President invited Laurent Koscielny to accompany him
French source Europe 1 report that Laurent Koscielny and Dimitri Payet were invited to travel to the World Cup final as part of French President Emmanuel Macron's delegation.
Both Koscielny and Payet will now be able to experience a World Cup despite being not called up. They missed this opportunity by injuries to the achilles and hamstring respectively. So this generous gesture from the leader of the nation will definitely be appreciated.
