Even if the point will be enough to the team of France to qualify for the last square of the League of Nations, coach Didier Deschamps did not imagine for a moment the Blues to be satisfied, Friday (20:45) in the Netherlands. " The goal is to win He insisted on Friday.
"In what state of mind does the group from France approach this meeting?
It depends on us. Friday's result could allow us to secure first place in our team. We know what remains to be done. Two results can match us (victory and painting). We will play this game as always, with ambition and goal to win, even if a draw is enough. We will not leave this result with an aspiration.
Two players (Griezmann and Mbappé) apply to the Ballon football team on your team, is it an advantage or a concern?
I do not think the games that preceded this show, the opposite. In any case, everything is sat down because the voices are closed. There has never been an opposition, and no one wants to do more than the other. They played an important role in Torah, sometimes together. There is no battle between them. For me, the presence of both, and they are not the only ones, is a force for the French team.
From within, is there real motivation for this League of Nations?
Really, yes. We can not create a competitive atmosphere in friendly games. Has a clear goal, is the first finish of the team. It was something important coming out of our title world champion. Adrenalin is important. The players experienced the summit in Russia. It's a very good thing.
What is your impression of the Dutch team?
This is a team that is under construction but is building well. Ronald Komen infiltrated many young players. They are on the good momentum, just see the last two games against Germany (3-0) and Belgium (1-1). Even against us, for an hour, we had good control and control, before the end, it was harder. There is a good generation. It's hard to get an actor. There is one who impresses me, (Frenkie) De Jong, with his game intelligence, technical quality and his ability to take out the balloons.
"Protection? I have no worries"
Given the absence, in particular defense, this match is a particular test? Is this one of your concerns?
I have no fears. This will be a test for any team that will have us in front of the respondent. There are two games left to play for us and only one. We know very well that they will do anything to take the maximum points. I trust the players called. It's a different relationship, different players, maybe another organization. But I have no worries, if it makes sense that four players are aligned to know a little less security and have fewer automatisms. It's a way of playing because they will have more landmarks.
Do you feel a certain emotion to return to Rotterdam, where you won Euro 2000?
It was a long time ago, I have not come back since. It's quite pleasant. It's a very good memory since after, there was not much, apart from that. But the players will not understand if I tell them about it. Some were not born, others were very small. Yes, nice to come back here. "
