In general, the blues know how to shift gears when the pressure is high and the air is scarce. The round of 16 major tournaments has not always been won, remember Euro 2016, where Didier Deschamps led Ireland at half-time to the troupe. But in the end we will ask the France team to step down.
The world of the blues met on Monday afternoon near a hotel locked in a player’s health bubble: Paul Pogba’s family, Kylian Mbabane’s family, but UEFA president Alexander Seferin or former Portuguese player Luis Figo met in the center of the Romanian capital.
They will watch the world champions from afar, expecting 24,000 spectators and 1,500 French people at the 50%-filled Bucharest National Arena. A few tricolor jerseys are starting to appear on the streets, but this is not crazy.
Mbappé is also expected
In any case, supporters will benefit Because they will not be able to line up Russia and St. Petersburg on FridayThe quarter-final against Spain, the winner of Spain, is scheduled for Monday at 6 p.m. For the 39th encounter between the two neighbors we must already withdraw from the Swiss trap, the first in a knockout match.
Deschamps will use its 3rd system in 4 games: after 4-4-2, 4-3-3, with a priori spot on 3-5-2, a demand pattern that has not worked since last year, and a longer three-way defense and a left piston to the rabbi rather than the Hernandez. Very tight on the roll. Not really a favorite place in the middle of nowhere …
Since the beginning of the Euros, DD has always been looking for the right formula, even if each other’s physical problems (even if he misses the mark) stops him. But this is not the time to catch up, it’s time to shake the net for Mbabane, the only starting striker to score so far.
