If They Are Almost Qualified, The Blues Do Not Have The Right To Miss Their Meeting Tonight 10 P.m

If they are almost qualified, the Blues do not have the right to miss their meeting tonight 10 p.m against Ecuador, on the legendary Rio lawn. Question of standing.

If They Are Almost Qualified, The Blues Do Not Have The Right To Miss Their Meeting Tonight 10 P.m

In the land of samba and forró, a question comes up on everyone's lips: on what foot will Didier Deschamps and his troupe be able to dance? As they approach their last group game tonight against Ecuador, the Blues are indeed in a dilemma. A problem for the rich, of course, but that the coach will have to decide: should we play this match thoroughly? With whom? All this while knowing that the ticket for the round of 16 has already reserved; that all that remains is to obliterate it.

Indeed, the probability of not seeing Hugo Lloris and his partners in the next round is very slim. We are almost qualified, recognises Mathieu Debuchy. The stakes may not be monstrous, but we want to win this match to keep the momentum going and thus better prepare for what follows. In other words, register the eighth meeting without defeat on their scoreboard. Since the Ukrainian revolution at the Stade de France last November, the France team have not lost six wins, one draw. While it probably won't be a deal-breaker, a hitch tonight at the Maracana would do. The base is the result, Didier Deschamps recalled a few hours after the success against Switzerland 5-2. Before adding, Expect to suffer. We must remain humble and lucid. I'm very vigilant about this, although with these players I don't need to add more. 

Before thinking about the rest of the program - even if a part is already displayed in the press room, proving the ambient optimism -, the Blues, therefore, intend to respect the sacrosanct principle which consists of taking the matches one after the other. We will play this meeting with enormous determination, promises Karim Benzema. We are focused on Ecuador, continues Mathieu Debuchy while Mathieu Valbuena rightly points out that the Ecuadorians will not give anything away because they will play their qualification against France.

Rio men

One of the challenges of this match is therefore to maintain the sporting dynamic, but also the esprit de corps, which seems to have taken hold in the blue house. At Euro 2012, Laurent Blanc's men found themselves in a similar situation. In the end, the defeat against Sweden 0-2 marked a rupture. It’s out of the question this time around. All cling to a new collective identity where the twenty-three selected all have their role to play, says Mathieu Debuchy.

Moreover, if he has warned that he will not field a team of hairdressers, Didier Deschamps will nevertheless make some changes. Hence the importance of keeping all of your player's alerts. Which should not be very difficult because beyond the stake and the opponent, this meeting takes on a unique flavour: it will play on the legendary lawn of the Maracana. Everyone wants to play this match, recognises Mathieu Debuchy. Yes, there is a strong expectation—an additional motivation for these men from Rio.
