“The hierarchy has been well established: it’s Kylian one and Neymar two [for penalties],” Galtier told reporters. “But there is the reality of the match and the moment I saw that they exchanged and that Neymar made the decision to take it after discussing with Kylian.
“I appreciated the attitude of Kylian to have congratulated him and that of Neymar to have thanked him. They are great players and it is also up to them to decide what it is based on how they feel. The most important thing is that Neymar asked him [nicely] and that Kylian came to congratulate him.”
