The first of the supporters.
Very present during the victory of the France team at the World Cup in Russia in 2018, Emmanuel Macron once again supports the Blues, who are preparing to start their Euro against Germany on Tuesday.
The president has lunch with the players and staff of the French at the Clairefontaine training center.
The “Maison des Bleus” is obviously placed under a health “bubble”, with the respect of a strict protocol because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Emmanuel Macron will then grant an interview to BFMTV and radio RMC, to “support the French team”.
This interview will be broadcast live on the 24-hour news channel at 2:30 p.m., then in the program "Top of the foot" on RMC at 6 p.m., whose two presenters, Mohamed Bouhafsi and Jean-Louis Tourre, will lead the interview.
The President of the Republic "will share his passion for the round ball, his memories of the 2018 World Cup and his attachment to amateur football", specify BFMTV and RMC.
"Complete confidence in Didier Deschamps"
Big football fan, and declared supporter of OM, Emmanuel Macron, by going to meet the Blues also continues a tradition launched by Jacques Chirac in 1998 and which he has respected since the start of the five-year term by having provided support to the French teams male and female before the 2018 World Cups in Russia and 2019 in France. "These competitions, we win them first when we are not afraid," he said then in particular to the Blue.
A year earlier, with his wife Brigitte, he had ordered the Blues to win "the second star", that is to say a second world championship title after that of 1998. He then went to Moscow for the final won by France against Croatia 4-2.
Emmanuel Macron speaks frequently of football, as on May 19 in the Aube, where he declared to have "complete confidence in Didier Deschamps", the coach of the Blues, who "showed that he knew how to choose a collective" and "the 'animate, with results in the key'.

Accompanied by the Minister of Sports Roxana Maracineanu, he also went in September 2019 to the Marcoussis National Rugby Center (Essonne) to encourage the XV of France before the World Cup in Japan.
