The team of France has folded, but has not broken this evening at Saint-Denis. Led to the score at the end of a quarter of hour of game after a penalty kick from Kroos after a lapse of Kimpembe, the Blues managed to prevail in the final against Germany (2-1) thanks to a double from Griezmann (62nd and 80th) with a second decisive goal enrolled on a penalty kick after Matuidi has collapsed into the surface.

The tactical repositioning operated by Didier Deschamps at the break has paid off in going from a duo to a trio in midfield to make it less vulnerable to the French defense because of the individual errors and duels lost. In densifier his midfield, France has taken the ascendant on his opponent and the attack is also gradually caught up to take to reverse this German defence. This time, it’s Antoine Griezmann who has brought to the forefront with this doubled, while Kylian Mbappé has been much more discreet in the face of Iceland last Thursday. “Grizou” was the hero of the evening in the evening especially on a nice headed goal in the set time after a center of Lucas Hernandez. The purpose of the Blue has plunged Germany into its doubts, forcing him to score not to fail in the League of nations. Hugo Lloris has delivered once again a good performance by performing several parades decisive for the course of this meeting. It has even been two fingers to stop the spot-kick from Toni Kroos.

Griezmann shone and was the final touch to a recovery class outstanding on the part of France. Less mistakes next habs, most duels won and more intensity : such were the ingredients to allow players of Didier Deschamps to win on Tuesday night. Germany has, of course, displayed a huge ball possession in the first half (over 60 %) to then give up control of the encounter after the break. Its decay will continue even after the elimination premature in the World. As for France, she is currently, quietly, to build a small feeling of superiority to live on the German team… Seville 1982 seems far away now.
