With four goals scored, the team of France has confirmed its big offensive potential without unfortunately forget his defensive shortcomings …
The France team completed on Tuesday with a victory against Russia (4-2) a period of two years of friendlies with its tests, its different forms, its analyzes microscope to find out which players have the most chance of making the Euro. The next time we revisit this team in late May, it will be comprised of 23 elected.
This last step could not much better unfold. The Stade de France, who were returning to his Blues just over four months after the tragic events of November, wanted to party. A tifo, a pretty banner, flags by the thousands, a first ola from the fifteen minutes of play, the Marseillaise … Rarely has the mood been so beautiful in Saint-Denis. And the Blues have extended the field, despite some new defensive mistakes.
The birthday gift Kanté
As in the Netherlands, they started strongly. Kante for his first international goal on the day of its 25th anniversary (8th) and Gignac (38th) were awarded a beautiful first period. But as the Netherlands, the second will give food for thought with two goals conceded, one of which, again, on set pieces (Kokorin, 56th, 68th Tarasov).
Fortunately, and this is the confirmation of what is sensed, the offensive potential of the Blues is immense. Payet has helped clean the Russian corner of a 30m free kick (64th), Coman is as talented as full of composure (76th). As for Griezmann , it is taking considerable weight in this team. This is not a coincidence that it was the only striker to start both games. But those that have evolved around it during those two games have shown up to it. The choice will be difficult for Deschamps, but no, he the first, no one will complain.
