"It makes a lot of good these atmospheres".
This is what emerges above all from the hours preceding the second match of the Blues at Euro 2021 between France and Hungary, under the dodger of Budapest.
5,000 French fans are expected at the Puskas Arena this afternoon.
And a good part of them had made an appointment on the symbolic place of the Heroes before starting a procession towards the stadium, which should be almost full.
Pierre-Hugues, Jean-Stéphane and Olivier came from Seine-et-Marne to encourage the Blues in Budapest.

“We've been here since the Hungarians' first match against Portugal,” recount Pierre-Hugues, Jean-Stéphane and Olivier, the two sons and the father from Seine-et-Marne. It's a great atmosphere. A tip? We're going to say 1 or 2-0. That's enough ". In the crowd, Breton flags, white jerseys, blue jerseys, Benzema, Kanté, Makélélé, Zidane, rooster heads and above all a magnificent atmosphere.
All the classic songs of the Blues are there.
“La Marseillaise” of course but also to the glory of Benjamin Pavard or the traditional cover of “I Will Survive”.
Budapest took on the air of France this Saturday.
“Frankly, it's incredible, rejoices Julie, who came from Brittany with some friends.
We arrived yesterday and we only saw French people everywhere.
We are at home and we will win this afternoon and this Euro ”.
The discussion stops before resuming in song.
"Who does not jump is not French" with a few beers that fly.
On a balcony, a Hungarian couple with a child watches the show: "With us the baby, with us the baby", proclaim the French.
And off we go to the Puskas Arena!

The procession continues on its way.
It left for a new "Marseillaise".
With the Hungarians crossed on the way, the atmosphere is perfect.
Many photos between fans of the two selections are exchanged.
"You are going to beat us but who cares", launches one of them.
"They make a lot of noise at the stadium," warns us, however, Pierre-Hugues.
Head inside to see who will win the match on the field and in the stands.
