Ex Chelsea defender, Marcel Desailly has come out to say that France cannot be stronger than they currently are. He recently revealed that the French team was definitely convincing to top their Euro 2020 group.
According to him, France’s three midfielders are conquerors, and players like Benzema, Mbappe and Griezmann make them a scary opposition for any team.
Marcel added that France is good in all areas of the pitch and they remain the team to beat in the tournament.
His words, “France convinced me. They finished first in the group of death. I am satisfied,”
“With the 4-3-3, they are playing much higher than at the World Cup. Our three midfielders are conquerors, with the incredible help of Benzema and Griezmann. They are not afraid of anyone. We have all these facets that can vary.”
“Once we have scored, and this is what happened against Germany, the opponent plays higher, which opens up space for the famous speed of Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema. We are good in all areas.”
“Honestly, I do not see how the France team can progress. We have all the elements. When it is necessary to play in another register, longer for example, Olivier Giroud will come to the forefront of the attack.”
“We are talking about the world champions! If they are all together at their best, at the same time, which is the case, they adapt to the opponent.”
“We’re f*cking strong, it’s amazing, and it’s not 11 players. [The 1998 team] had a very strong group and a magic weapon, Zinedine Zidane. Behind, the group was solid.”
“Now, it is a sum of individualities at their best which adapt to the match, to the opponent, to the moment. There is everything in this team.”
“When I found out the next opponent that we respect a lot, instinctively I put myself in the position of a quarter-finalist, and I looked at the teams that we were going to meet at this stage of the competition,”
“They can do like the Spaniards in the opposite direction. We have the feeling that the progress of the France team will continue during the next World Cup, they can do it again!”
