YLuis Enrique himself warned him after beating the Czech Republic. “Look what happens in European football”said the Spanish coach about the tremendous equality facing the Old Continent.
And it is that we find ourselves in an atypical situation in which the great powers have succumbed or have been close to doing so before the so-called second-order nations.

The French team, current world champion and great favorite to retain the title, has been left out of the fight for the title and will therefore lose the Nations League crown. Mediocre performances and an exhausted and unmotivated team have caused alarm bells to go off across the country.
Neither Mbapp nor Griezmann nor Tchouameni nor Benzema They have managed to get an unknown selection out of the well in this season finale. Will the almighty France be able to rearm in the face of Qatar?
