Didier Deschamps after France’s loss to Tunisia: « I didn’t neglect this game »


Isn’t launching so many new players bad for their confidence?

“It will help them. The objective was different, by the fact of sparing certain players, who were at risk because of minor injuries or threat of suspension. Marcus Thuram had a problem, I had to change it at the beginning of the afternoon. I am well aware that the lack of benchmarks is detrimental to collective expression, nevertheless, to all of them, it allows them to get to grips with the requirements of the very high level.

The very pale performance of the Blues, the goal refused to Griezmann … what to remember from the defeat of France against Tunisia

Faced with an overexcited Tunisia, we were shy, late in the duels, with technical errors. The entry of more experienced players allowed us to have several opportunities. But not all goals can be achieved. The first, most important, was to be qualified.

I did not neglect this match, but it will serve us in four days. The players are not happy. We are 24. The 24 won the first two games, the 24 lost this one. I will need the 24 for the match which awaits us in four days. And some will have been full of energy. Our opponent will be forced to play a 4th match in 12 days. We need freshness, we can’t have everything. That we have to do better, yes, because we let them tickle us. »

« Hairdressers » far from breathtaking: the notes of the Blues after the defeat of France against Tunisia (0-1)

Why did you make so many changes from the third game of 2018…

«  (He cuts) We didn’t have a point to get this time to be sure of being first, so it was not at all the same situation as in 2018 (for France-Denmark, 0-0). I’m telling you that but I’m not tense, I’m not getting angry. I’m not going to blow them to blow them. These are 100-minute matches every four days, matches with a lot of energy expenditure… »

“These are my choices, I assume them. To have made others would not have changed the match that we have in four days. Without neglecting the match, the objective was fixed on the round of 16 which awaits us on Sunday. I know very well that I don’t put them in the best position… But there were different objectives. I’m not going to condemn anyone. »

What positive do you take away from your changes?

“I retain (Axel) Disasi for his first selection, Eduardo Camavinga who has done good things on the left even if it is not his position. Randal Kolo Muani showed what he could do. I can take a little positive from each one even if there are individual performances a little below. It will serve them all.

On the changes, I did what I had planned, namely that Kylian (Mbappé) had thirty minutes to stay on the pace. There were two planned changes for Kingsley Coman and Raphaël Varane. I had more attacking choices with Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembélé. I brought in Adrien (Rabiot), which was not planned and unfortunately prevented me from bringing in Olivier (Giroud). »
