France-Poland (3-1): Adrien Rabiot feels "more union and solidarity" compared to the Euro


Another author of an excellent match this Sunday against Poland (3-1) in the round of 16 of the World Cup, the Juventus midfielder spoke in

The matches follow one another and look alike for Adrien Rabiot.

Once again impressive in the heart of the game, the midfielder of Juventus and the Blues was one of the main architects of the tricolor victory this Sunday against Poland (3-1).

He wants to see further now and gives reasons to believe before the meeting of the quarter-finals.

After an unspecified first half, did you doubt?


Not at all.

After some… I didn't feel like that.

We saw all the same that by accelerating we could put them in difficulty.

Even if we weakened a bit at one point, I think we mastered our subject even more in the second half.

We were aware that we had to do more than in first, but we had no doubts.

What inspires you in the career of Olivier Giroud who becomes the only top scorer in the history of the Blues (52 goals)?

It's incredible !

Each time we come back to it, but what he's been going through has been incredible since the beginning.

We were waiting for him in the locker room to celebrate.

Unfortunately, he was at doping control.

We are all aware that it is incredible what he achieves, that's why we were all there to celebrate, but it's great!

We are all happy for him because he is a really humble person, who works.

He deserves it.

Are you going to celebrate at the hotel anyway?

Yes of course.

We'll see the reception already, that's what we expected (he smiles).

Then we will celebrate it between us, with everyone, the staff, the players.

And also Hugo (Lloris, who joins Lilian Thuram as the most capped player in the selection).

They are two important players, with experience.

They deserve to be celebrated.

Does Kylian Mbappé still manage to surprise you?

It seems to me that I have already said it, it does not surprise me because I know its potential, its qualities, as well as its room for improvement.

We are all aware that he can really do a lot.

Afterwards, it's incredible the goals he scores, in what positions he manages to find the angles… It's great, that's what we expect of him.

We work behind and we wait for him to do the job in front.

He answers now, it's really great.

How do you view your own performance?

A positive look.

Like the team, I felt calm again this (Sunday) evening, in the continuity of what has been happening since the start of the World Cup.

I do what the coach asks of me.

I recovered balls, I supported the offensives.

I really feel on my feet.

We know that there aren't many games to play in such a competition and you really have to give your all.

Do you sense something different in the group spirit compared to the Euros that would make you think you can go far?

I feel a little more this union, this solidarity on the ground but also outside.

With the staff or the players who are on the field but also those who are not playing.

We feel that everyone is concerned.

Even at the hotel, in group life, things are going really well.

(…) We really have this serenity and this solidarity when we want.

It's difficult for our opponents to pass to get serious chances.

This is the most important, because after in front we have the players we need to score.

We must keep this solidarity, this union, continuing to play compact as the coach wants.
