‘Doumbia fell and was swallowing his own tongue and Serge was one of the first to arrive and help,’ said Mali boss Fousseni Diawara.

‘That’s when Aurier, with one of our players, quickly put him on his side and pulled out his tongue, because he was about to lose his life.’ 

‘There is one thing nobody is talking about, which is the manner in which he helped a Malian on the pitch.’
