Didier Deschamps looks back on the World Cup final lost by France

The contract of Didier Deschamps, 54, as coach of the French football team has been extended until 2026, the coach of the Blues announced at the General Assembly of the French Football Federation on Saturday in Paris . The French coach spoke at a press conference about the final lost by France during the World Cup in Qatar against Lionel Messi’s Argentina.

The former Juventus player explains: “Already there is the quality of the opponent. We weren’t surprised. On our side, on the starting team, there were 4-5 players who were physically less well. And there is also an emotional side. It was the first final for some, it’s special. We didn’t exist for a good hour. Then we came back from nowhere. »

And then add: “We jostled them. I do not hide the part where there was no match. Factually, there were at least five players out of the starting eleven who were not up to par for such a match and against such an opponent. »

Arrived at the controls of the France team in 2012, Deschamps was at the end of his contract at the end of the World Cup in Qatar where the Blues had reached the final, won by Argentina on penalties.
