French team: the remarkable arrival of the Thuram brothers in Clairefontaine

At the beginning of the afternoon, the two had essentially the same jacket, with different colors. Khephren wore a yellow and black tunic when Marcus wore almost the same but blue and black. Another common point between the two:; the wide smile displayed before joining the rest of the troop. The happiness of two brothers who follow in the footsteps of their glorious dad.

A few hours after the debacle against Rennes (0-2), Kylian Mbappé did so in sobriety: dark jacket, sunglasses and thumbs up to say that everything is fine. With the Blues in any case, everything is fine…
