World champions France began the qualifying round with a disappointing 1-1 draw with the Ukrainians. After the match, the French’s tactics were criticized, among other things, but it is clear that not many coaches at Didier Deschamps could work with more immersion, so the most important question remains how to assemble the best-performing team from the world. stars.
It is also useful for us to pay attention to the team that plays in Kazakhstan, which is one of Hungary’s competitors in the European Championship. That’s why we called him Flavian Tresario, A journalist from L’Equipe’s football department asks about the French.
At the beginning of French painting
“ In France, the focus was not only on our team’s tactics, but also on the defensive group that we had to overcome on Wednesday. A French colleague told our newspaper. – In recent times, it has become apparent that France is having difficulty defending the gangs closed near its gates. Kylian Mbappe has been closely guarded by at least two people and he really lives when he can go from momentum to his opponents, behind whom a lot opens up space. Antoine Griezmann likes to catch the ball from time to time to find the best pass, but he did not have a chance against Ukraine and the team was unable to respond to the difficulties. “
About Didier Deschamps’ tactics
Didier Deschamps, Captain of the France national football team: “We play three matches in a short time. Obviously, I don’t always send the same eleven to the field. There will also be changes against the Kazakhs, but then on Sunday I’ll decide how much. I won’t say that some players already have European Cup membership at stake, no.” There are still two months left until entry, and there are other factors that I will take into consideration. “
“Since winning the World Cup, he has tried several formations to see what to do if Plan A does not work in European Championships. Flavian Tresario explained this. – In the main matches of the continental championship, the squad will be from four to four two, although some prefer to describe it as four, two, three, one. If we pay close attention, we can see that this is determined by Griezmann’s position, and more specifically whether he plays as a striker or as the manager behind Olivier Giroud. In this squad, there will be a more defensive player on the left side of midfield, Blaise Matuidi in the World Cup and recently Adrian Rabiot. When the ball is lost, this player moves into the middle, while Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kanté prefer to move to the right, so a striker who plays there like Mbappe doesn’t have to help much in defense. Deschamps wants Griezmann and Mbappe to play a lot together, and they enjoy as much freedom as possible. “
About the stars traveling to Budapest
The match against the Kazakhs is important not only because of the correction, but also because, before the European Championship, the French will play directly against the Bosnians only (March 31). While many players have rented seats, some of these meetings (and the club’s shape) can also help them secure an invitation to the summer continental tournament, in which the Hungarian national team, along with the German and Portuguese national teams, are a collective opponent. .
“We expect almost half of the team to be replaced in Kazakhstan. Raphael Varane and Piamen Pavard will start the defense again, with Kurt Zuma in the middle and Verland Mindy on the left. L’Equipe staff began to list the expected starting team on Sunday. –In midfield, Pogba is supposed to start alongside Rabiot. Ousmane Dembele, Thomas Lemar and Anthony Martial are also expected to play, it is likely that Marcial will be the striker and Griezmann will play his successor as organizer. Looking at the European championships, the framework largely combined in Deschamps’s mind. If there were no injuries, Moj Minnan and Steve Mandanda, who are considered his successors, will be the goalkeeper alongside Hugo Lloris. Lucas Denny, Lucas Hernandez, Prisnell Kempebe, Clement Lenglet, Benjamin Pavard and Raphael Varane are almost sure of the defense. Zouma is also supposed to be a frame member, with last position being Léo Dubois more defensive or more offensive Ferland Mendy, which can be deployed to both sides. In midfield, Kante, Rabiot and Pogba will be there in the European Championship. Corentin Tolisso is injured, and miraculous Eduardo Camavinga is not in good shape now as Steven Nzonzi, so Tanguy Ndombélé or Moussa Sissoko can enter, something Deschamps appreciates and considers a real team player. Up front, Griezmann, Mbappe, Giroux and Kingsley Coman will be present on the continent. Martial was well against the Portuguese in the fall, and we can expect a lot. In addition to these, many players are competing for the remaining two places, in addition to Nabil Fekir, Thomas Lemar, Marcus Thuram and Wissam Ben Yedder, and Hossam Aouar and Florian Thofen may also have the opportunity to invite them. “
