Very attentive to the connection of an attack which makes dream all France, Didier Deschamps gave voice to encourage, replace and direct his troops.

Guided by an unfeigned desire to try the experience with the three leaders.
Behind them, “DD” also trusted another trio, with Rabiot-Tolisso-Pogba, and a “classic” defense made up of Hernandez-Kimpembe-Varane-Pavard as well as Lloris in the goal.
A team which could be brought to debut against the Welsh in Nice.
Mbappé the only one to score a goal during the opposition
"We replace ourselves, it does not matter, make the effort", will drop Deschamps, arms crossed along the touchline, to Kylian Mbappé after a bad pass for Karim Benzema.
Sign of constant attention and concerned with the slightest clue to perfect the understanding of his attack.
For the anecdote, the Parisian was the only one to register a goal during this opposition anything but uninteresting.
For his greatest pleasure.
Even if the whole remains more perfectible than ever, Deschamps has a clear idea in his head.
And count on the next few days to continue its work.
