On this Saturday, January 1, Didier Deschamps wanted to address the supporters of the France team, to wish them a happy new year and call on them to support the Blues as the 2022 World Cup approaches in Qatar.
2022 will be a very important year for the Blues. In search of revenge after their failed Euro (elimination from the round of 16), Antoine Griezmann and his gang will defend their world crown in Qatar, from November 21 to December 18, having in mind the sad fate of the three previous world champions , systematically eliminated in pools during the following edition (Italy, Spain and Germany). It will be necessary to rely on the pride shown at the end of last year, on the confidence gained with the coronation in the League of Nations.
« We need you »
