Deschamps does not fear a curse linked to the world champions


Zapping Goal! soccer club Top 10: the best scorers of the decade

At the end of the year, the French team will defend its title of world champion for the second time in its history. The first, it had gone badly since the Blues of Roger Lemerre had been eliminated at the first of the 2002 World Cup after defeats against Senegal (0-1) and Denmark (0-2) as well as a draw against Uruguay (0-0). Twenty years later, will the Habs do better? We can fear the worst since four of the last five defending champions were eliminated in the first round of the next event, namely Germany in 2018, Spain in 2014, Italy in 2010 and therefore the Blues in 2002 went out the back door.

Asked about this curse, Didier Deschamps replied: « It’s factual that for the defending champion, it’s complicated. I’m not going to take 6 or 15 world champions from 2018 for a history of statistics ». There is no doubt that the 98 world champion, who was not part of the disastrous Korean-Japanese adventure, will however be able to take into account this funny misadventure which strikes the defending champions so as not to be a victim in turn…

to summarize

This Thursday afternoon, during his press conference for the upcoming matches in the League of Nations, the coach of the France team, Didier Deschamps, was asked about the early eliminations of the last world champions.
