The Blues begin their tenth day on Doha soil.
They hope to stay there until December 18, the day of the final.
In the meantime, Didier Deschamps' men are calmly projecting themselves into the shock of Group D which will see them challenge Denmark on Saturday (6 p.m. in France).
Confirmation of the day
The clues of the day before were to be taken seriously.
If there is a backup lining in the mind of Didier Deschamps at the left-back position, the role seems to devolve on Eduardo Camavinga.
During a rehearsal of the preferential ball circuits, the former Rennes player today at Real Madrid was used in the left lane to multiply the centers.
Not really a habit for this training midfielder, even if, very young, he was already able to occupy the position of left winger.
As a reminder, since Lucas Hernandez's injury package, his brother is the only professional left-back in the group.
Question of the day
Kingsley Coman has shortened his session but it is a simple precautionary measure.
A slight discomfort in the hip prompted the staff to adjust their working hours.
The 26-year-old from Munich took part in the warm-up with the rest of his partners before leaving the lawn with the physical trainer, Cyril Moine.
Nothing serious for the one who was entitled to 20 minutes of play against Australia.
He should also resume training normally this Friday.
The exercise of the day
Training open to the media is never the most instructive.
We will still remember this exercise of head games at the start of the session.
Two by two, the Blues were instructed by deputy Guy Stéphan to exchange the ball for as long as possible.
The strongest ?
No doubt the two Milanese Théo Hernandez and Olivier Giroud.
Certainly Camavinga and Griezmann.
They also excelled in the field but in addition, they had the idea of mixing business with pleasure.
The new midfielder of the Blues constantly sought to trap the Madrid player by hitting his heads horizontally.
Much to Cama's delight, hilarious.
The statement of the day: “Ah good?
Yes, we chose this expression.
Two words and a question mark.
Like that of Marcus Thuram, very surprised, that he is asked about the reason for his laconic answers during his press conference.
The fear of the dumpling, of the sentence taken out of its context, and crushed in the washing machine of polemics?
None of that, replied the Bundesliga striker all in the second degree.
“I can do longer, he continued.
I see you are writing, I just want to make your job easier, that's all.
