A former French international destroys the Blues


By: Manu Tournoux

The French team was disillusioned last night. Facing Germany in Lyon, the Blues suffered another defeat (2-0), seven months after having already lost to the Nationalmannschaft in Dortmund. An ordinary performance, and which does not inspire optimism three months before the Euro, where the France team should be the favorite. Asked by The Team after the match, former French international Vincent Guérin did not spare Didier Deschamps' players.

I didn't think I would see the France team so outclassed. This collective passivity. I felt like I was watching a tactical setup the day before a match. To see a team that was content to slide along purring. There was no movement, no availability. Technical errors galore, analyzes the former PSG player with 19 caps. In the middle, it hurts to say it but they were transparent. We lacked aggression and availability. We didn't see any collective pressing. It's been a long time since I've seen the France team at such a level. It’s not normal to have seen such a difference between the two teams.”
