“It's great to see all the friends again.
We live again with this match.
Florent, supporter of the Blues, made more than 1000 km and 13 hours of bus to come to encourage Kylian Mbappé and his band this Tuesday evening against Germany, for the entry in the running of the team of France to the Euro 2021. For him and his friends, it's a day of celebration, “the most beautiful European poster that can exist between the last two world champions”.
Aurore, like him from the north of France, is enjoying this moment that she has been waiting for more than a year and the postponement of the competition.
“With my partner, we left our triplets with the grandparents,” she says.
There is a lot of excitement.
We will win for sure, I see a 2-1 success.
France-Germany: French supporters arrived in Munich
Among the French supporters, who will be around 2,500 this Tuesday evening in the legendary Allianz Arena, optimism is essential.
It is out of the question to imagine the worst.
“We left Dunkirk on Monday evening with 40 people, says Kevin, France team jersey on the back and blue, white, red hat on the head.
We arrived this Tuesday around 11:30 am.
We make the most of the city center, we will get to the stadium in due time, depending on the ticket slots and then, we will set fire.
"We are happy to be there because we have come a long way"
The young man did not wait to be at the stadium to set the mood.
He became leader of the pack by singing several songs on the terrace of a bar on Wienerplatz at noon in the center of Munich.
He doesn't want to waste a beat.
Especially since he was afraid for a long time of not being able to attend this event because of the health crisis: “Yes, there was a fear of not being there and not taking advantage of this moment.
Each match of the France team is magic.
I have lived through several Euros and World Cups… To experience moments like this is impossible without supporters.
The supporters are starting to give their voice to Munich!

“We are really happy to be there because we have come a long way,” Jérémy says.
We had the ticket validation only three weeks ago.
Organizing a competition like this is already very difficult in normal times, but then with the Covid and all the constraints of the tests, the forms… We are going to be tested again but it is only happiness.
It is worth it, because it is an extraordinary adventure.
We had the places in December 2019. Everything was postponed and, there, everything has accelerated in recent weeks.
We can decompress.
Around 2,500 French supporters made the trip to Munich on Tuesday.

Beer is flowing freely in the bars of the capital, under a blazing sun (28 degrees at 4 pm).
And it is on the side of the Marienplatz that the atmosphere is strongest, with noisy French supporters, around a hundred in the middle of the afternoon, who take up the greatest classics of their repertoire.
“La Marseillaise” obviously, as well as the essential “Who does not jump is not French”.
All under the gaze of a few German supporters, with Mannschaft jerseys on several street corners.

“We are privileged to be here to support the Blues. We will give even more votes than usual, ”announces Fabien. It is not the players who will complain. “Frankly, it will make us really happy to see you in the stadiums, proclaimed Paul Pogba, a few days ago at a press conference. We are going to give the maximum in the field and we will always need you. Because without you, we are nothing at all. “The message from the middle of the France team is passed. The fans are ready to play their score. For them too, the Euro really begins this Tuesday, with a dream in mind: relive the same scenes of jubilation as three years ago, during the World Cup in Russia.
