France coach, Didier Deschamps has come out to say that he is pleased with how Cristiano Ronaldo was tamed during the 0-0 draw vs Portugal in their Nations League clash on Sunday.

Didier recently revealed that he was pleased to see his team keep a clean sheet while ensuring Ronaldo stayed quiet.

According to him, the defense and midfield did very well in the match but the attack was just unable to score the needed goals.

He added that it was a solid and tactical game and France was definitely the better team in the 2nd half.

His words, “We can always do better, then there is the quality of the opponent too. They take precautions like us, with respect to the players opposite like Cristiano, who we didn’t see too much tonight,”

“Sometimes the movements are not good, sometimes the pass comes a bit late too. The defensive sector and the midfield performed quite well. In the last phase, we have to do better to be able to win the match even if it could have been on a set piece like them they also had.

“I knew Portugal were a great team, we saw that tonight. It’s better when there are goals, but hey there is quality and not just offence.

“A solid game, fairly tactical, I think we were better in the second half. We had more control but few opportunities on one side and the other. There is quality on both sides, it could have changed.

“I think we took the upper hand in the second, but without succeeding in creating a lot of shifts as they on their side created very little too.”
