His analysis of the defeat of the Blues

It's never fun to lose obviously.

Afterwards, we lost the battle because this Danish team had a lot of impact, aggressiveness and commitment.

We did a good 25 minutes, but we lacked efficiency.

They score on their first opportunity… We had situations on set pieces where they find themselves with a Dane alone in the box.

No matter the system, it must not happen.

We were too naive.

The players were warned of the duels, of the commitment, but the Danes were more solid and consistent than us.


If he sees positive elements in defeat

When you lose, there are few positive things.

It's another booster shot.

It's the high level, when you put in less… It's complicated for everyone.

The very high level requires maximum requirements, even more on a World Cup (November 20-December 18).

Today, and I'm not going to make excuses, obviously quality young players have learned and will learn from this evening.

But the important thing is to be able to recover all our strength for two months.

The French shortcomings on corner


We may not have been in difficulty on all the corners, but we had four in a row (in the first period) where it is naivety on our part, even if the Danes played well.

It must not happen.

I don't take the credit away from the opponent, but when it happens more than twice, when Delanay finds himself alone three times, it's not normal.

We had positioning issues.

At the top level it does not forgive.


The sinking of Camavinga in Copenhagen

I'm not going to judge the individual performance, 'Cama' was not in the best of moods, that can happen too.

He was absent from us for a long time.

He was not the only (player) either (to be in difficulty), it will serve him like others for the future.


Mbappé can't do it all alone either.

Didier Deschamps

Mbappé's bad game

He did a lot of good things, he also chained, he can't do everything alone either.

I'm not worried about him, he also needs others.


Retention in the League of Nations, meager consolation

It's a lesser evil, it only depended on us but we didn't do the right thing.

Croatia's victory (in Austria, 3-1) keeps us in League A. Other big nations go down to League B due to a terrible month of June.

But it's not going to make me jump to the ceiling (to be maintained).


His view on Benzema possible Ballon d'Or

I hope it will be him because he deserves it.

He won important titles in club (Liga, C1) and in selection with the League of Nations (last October).

He has been one of the best strikers in the world for years.

He is very well positioned and I will be very happy for him that he has this award.

It is an important asset for us in relation to our goal of the World Cup.
