Smiles, massages, and lots of recovery. This is how we can sum up the Sunday spent by the men of Didier Deschamps, the day after their convincing success against Denmark (2-1).
Victory of the day
The substitutes played a new training match this Sunday. This time they were opposed for two periods of 25 minutes to the local team of Al-Ahli. Result, a 2-0 success thanks to Marcus Thuram, author of a solid half-hour on Saturday evening, and a penalty obtained by Eduardo Camavinga converted by Mattéo Guendouzi.
The joke of the day
We could have called this section the reference of the day, or even the tribute of the day. Invited to a press conference, Raphaël Varane remembered this Sunday with good memories of the antics of his friend Adil Rami. The 29-year-old French defender, author of a more than reassuring return against Denmark, saw his speech disrupted by the triggering of a fire alarm. “This time it’s not Adil Rami, I promise you! “, he replied, referring to the restless evening of the Habs, after their victory in the round of 16 against Argentina (4-3) at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Rami, now stationed in Troyes, had used a fire extinguisher in the middle of the night, activating the fire alarm at the same time. The opportunity for us to advise you on the presentation made by the 2018 teaser of the 24 Blues present four years later. Read it HERE.
The car of the day
It was also Theo Hernandez’s turn to answer questions from the press. A relaxed exercise. Especially when asked about the compliments from our Chinese colleagues. There, the French left side, whose complicity with Mbappé on the lawn works wonders, is compared to a “super fast car”. “If it’s a Ferrari, it’s better! “, he retorted, hilarious.
