Winners of England (2-1) after a hectic match, the Blues of Didier Deschamps are qualified in the semi-finals of the World Cup. And of course, the incredible scenario of the meeting did not fail to react to the French stars of the basketball world. Anthology.
They did it. Thanks to a mule strike from Aurélien Tchouaméni, a header from the inevitable Olivier Giroud, and a constant defensive effort, the tricolor qualified for the semi-finals of the World Cup, where they will find Morocco. Didier Deschamps and his men are now only two games away from becoming the first team to retain their title in two consecutive editions since Brazil in 1958 and 1962. An eternity.
From Gobert to Fournier, French basketball players in turmoil!
In a crazy confrontation, marked by two penalties for the English, it was finally from Olivier Giroud that the light came. Unmissable, the top scorer in the history of the French team signed his 53rd achievement in the blue jersey, perhaps his most important, to propel his team to the next round. Something to shake up the tricolor basketball planet, riveted to its screen during the hostilities – the proof below:

Oh my God 😅😳😮💨🇫🇷
From Rudy Gobert thoroughly on the match during his workout to the disbelief of Nicolas Batum and Evan Fournier, the basketball players were like their country: thoroughly in front of the match, hoping defeat the English and their great arrogance. It is now done.
The Blues hit very hard by sending England home, and it is now a place in the final that seems to be reaching out to them. For that, it will nevertheless be necessary to have an impressive Morocco so far. Case to follow, in all humility…
