This time it's the right one or it's not understanding anything. This is the party night at the Stade de France, qualifying night in any case and no one imagines Moldova to delay the deadline once again, a month after Turkey has survived by a draw (1-1) to one of the best games of Didier Deschamps's troupe in these playoffs.
This Wednesday at a press conference, the coach has handled the prudence of rigor while answering a question on the formula of this Euro Baroque, believing that he would adapt to this competition broke out. If he answered and he answered that he would adapt, it is because he imagines himself participating in it and he is quite right. France is the country twice world champion who managed one evening in November 1993 not to qualify for the World Cup next year in the United States but we must stop playing with fear, as would say Kylian Mbappé.
Mbappé, as we expect his Majesty the nights that matter
Since 1993, the Blues have participated in all the finals every two years (European Championship or World Cup) and they have not always qualified ex officio even if they have been well served in this field. 1998, 2002 and 2016. They can even this Thursday evening compost their ticket without playing, according to the result of Turkey.
But as they are out, as much as Varane's partners take care of themselves. "Prudence does not mean fear," said the coach, while the set of the week was to avoid any triumphalism. It's about being vigilant. The reality is that we are not qualified. We have everything to achieve the goal. You have to be realistic and pragmatic. "
The evening brings back in the hearts tricolor the aura of Kylian Mbappé, invisible in selection since the beginning of the season due to injury. It's as if his colleagues had wanted to wait before validating the ticket for this Euro where the Blues will return in conquest, two years after the title of world champion. As we wait for his Majesty the evenings that count more than others. Without Matuidi neither Hernandez nor Pogba, wounded, France will remember that it has internal solutions. It must be proved again against Moldova. It will be time then to dream of a destiny of holders to the Euro for all present and some absent. If all goes well, they can think about 23 hours.
