His analysis of the game
“This match is the rocking match in the competition.
When you come out of the pools, you have to win it and qualify.
We were in a favorite position and the opponent gave us a hard time.
We had 25 difficult, laborious minutes, with a slack, we weren't doing things well with and without the ball.
The half-times are also used for that
to review the positioning in particular.
We had the good fortune to lead before half-time, but I have the feeling that we lacked pep and we left too many possibilities for the opponent to create danger.
By changing the positioning of Antoine
this led us to see better dangerousness across the width.
If we are not very dangerous on one side, the opponent focuses a lot of attention on Kylian.
I don't want to put everything on Antoine but he knows that he has scattered a bit.
If there are no superlatives on Mbappé, author of a double
“Kylian is Kylian, he speaks very well with his feet.
Even if he was not in the best of moods.
He has this ability to be able to change the course of a match at any time.
His happiness, his smile is so beautiful, we all want to share it with him.
The France team will always need a great Kylian of course.

Giroud's record and its contribution
“Olivier has always been an important player, even though he didn't score 4 years ago in Russia.
He had difficult periods, today he is rewarded because he has often been decried, criticized.
In his head, he has a mind, has never had anything given … This is not an insignificant record.
To score so many goals at international level, congratulations to him, to his longevity and also to his partners who allowed him to score all these goals.

The difficult raises of the Blues and the waste in the game
We got into trouble on our own (on short raises), it has become a fashion to come out, and I don't ask Hugo to systematically clear, but I don't think I've seen a team from 5m50 and score a goal… We also experienced that against Tunisia.
There are things we can improve, we are far from perfect, but this waste has not brought peace to our game.

The referee who asked Koundé to remove his chain in the middle of a match
“(Annoyed) Jules was lucky he wasn't in front of me otherwise… A chain is not allowed on a football pitch, he should know that and he knows that.
We do not play with a watch, or sunglasses.
Jules didn't have to have that around his neck."
