Europe makes fun of the French team


By: Manu Tournoux

It is certainly an anecdotal defeat, since this duel between France and Germany was only a friendly match, but it is still likely to leave some traces. Not necessarily in the French group, but rather with foreign observers and fans. Indeed, the Blues did not show a very good image on the pitch at Groupama Stadium, only three months before the Euro. Which does not go unnoticed. It must be said that even if Germany remains a great nation, everyone saw France winning, and the Germans were the first surprised by this success.

“Germany beats France, favorites for the European Championship. With this level, France will have difficulty at the European Championship »we can for example read in the German media Kicker. In a long article on the French offensive sector, the German newspaper even took the opportunity to tackle Mbappé: “he failed to do anything against the Germans. His exaggerations and deceptions brought nothing”. “To everyone’s surprise, our team won 2-0 in Lyon against France, finalist of the World Cup”goes his own way Bild.

France is less scary

“France can hope that Griezmann is fit for the Euro. Captain Mbappé needs his support if they want to improve on this performance which has done nothing to justify his status as tournament favorite.”explains Daily Mail in England. “Germany and Kroos conquer France. Nagelsmann's team, with an excellent Kroos in the middle, won a deserved victory against a sleeping France.we can read in Spain. “Wirtz has fun with Mbappé”goes so far as to title Mundo Deportivo.

Will France win Euro 2024?

“Deschamps must take inspiration from Nagelsmann and work on the animation of the team, which seemed flat. Especially against the freshness and ideas of the Germans”for its part launches the Gazzetta dello Sport in Italy. “Nagelsmann’s Germany beat an unrecognizable France”writing Sky Sport Italia. “Even in France, it’s 11 against 11 and Germany wins”explains the Portuguese media In Bolain reference to the famous saying “(…) and in the end it is Germany who wins” by Gary Lineker. You will have understood, the image of the Blues deteriorated considerably in Europe after this defeat.
