On the atmosphere during the first match

"It's not possible for me to compare this to other World Cups because I wasn't there (laughs) but there was a very good atmosphere with our supporters who made noise, they pushed us a lot .

But it's not like Dortmund or the Velodrome either.

The victory against Australia (4-1) obviously gave us a lot of confidence before the game against Denmark.

And then we are happy to have managed to score a lot of goals.

On Wednesday's opposition and Camavinga's role as left-back

It was a training match (against a local team), it was to set the pace, they put a lot of intensity, they pressed.

(On Camavinga's side position) Edouardo played this role a bit during the match because with Lucas' injury we don't have too many other solutions.

We don't have many left-handers in the squad (Lloris, T.Hernandez, Camavinga, Giroud, Dembélé).

He was very good, he also scored a magnificent goal.

Griezmann's performance and his midfield role

“He gave a great performance, he has a lot of technical quality, volume of play, he could almost play number 6 later.

He's a great player who gave a good performance but I hope he will play better matches later.

What changes the presence of Varane

“I don't think it's worth talking to you about footballing quality.

He is one of the executives, vice-captain, he gives us confidence, with his experience, he supervises us.

He talks to us a lot, he helps us.

His return will do us a lot of good.

But it is necessary to underline the big match of Dayot Upamecano and Konaté.

“We all congratulated him after his double.

We know what that represents at the international and national level.

Olivier Giroud is a great striker, he has won trophies, scored a lot of goals, he is a world-class player.

He's been at a very high level for a while now and he's staying there.

I wish him to score many more goals.

“We must emphasize the quality of the opponent, they are underrated.

They are 10th in the Fifa rankings and I think they are among the top 4 teams in Europe.

Now, our defeats against them (in the last two matches) in the League of Nations, it's in the past, today it's the World Cup we are ready to face them.

They know how to put a lot of intensity, play the ball very well and they are very dangerous on set pieces.

We will be ready for Saturday.
