As FIFA President Gianni Infantino presented President Trump with soccer-themed gifts at a meeting on Tuesday, a reporter attempted to hurl questions at the two men.

Trump requested that she hold her questions until later, and he then asked where she was from.

“Brazil,” she told him. “We have the best team in the world.”

Trump smiled and replied, “Except they had a little problem last time.” Brazil made it to the quarter-finals of the World Cup this year, before falling to Belgium.

The FIFA president then presented Trump with yellow and red cards, explaining that referees use the red cards to kick players out of the game. The president took the card and gestured to the press, eliciting laughter from the room.
