It's a good thing that there is such an atmosphere for a match.
Our adversaries are not in the stands, they are on the pitch.
A team will have a third star on the shirt.
Deschamps on the presence of Benzema
“If I don't answer, you'll say I'm pissed off.
Since the injury of Lucas Hernandez, I have 24 players to manage.
To ask the question vis-à-vis these players is clumsy to say the least.
We also had Christopher Nkunku who was injured before Karim.
Deschamps: "The French team was the best thing that ever happened to me"
“The France team was the best thing that ever happened to me, in my life as a player and then as a coach.
I am very happy, the most important thing has always been the France team, not me.
I am at her service, she is above everything.
It's nice to think of me, but what's on my mind is tomorrow's game.
Deschamps: "When Kylian has to speak, he speaks"

After Kylian Mbappé needs peace.
I have no desire to disturb his state of mind.
He is focused on tomorrow's game.

We have three observers who have seen all the games, which allows us to have precise information, even if Argentina can do something different tomorrow.
You have to be ready for all situations.
Deschamps: "When it's the first final for a player, there are fewer benchmarks"
“The context of a final is special, there is an emotional side which can be different depending on the players.
2018 went better than 2016. When it's the first final for a player, there are fewer benchmarks.
The management of emotions is important, my speech and the exchanges are not identical between all the players.
Deschamps: "The key word is to adapt"
“The key word is to adapt.
Argentina had to deal with certain situations like losing the first game.
We did what was necessary against our six opponents to meet tomorrow.

We don't agree with the Argentine people and we will do everything to get what we want.
Deschamps has no additional information about the virus.

I don't have the latest info.

Lloris: “When Messi plays, you need a plan to counter him”
"It's a great match, we shouldn't focus on just one player.
There are two nations, France and Argentina.
When Messi plays, you need a plan to counter him, but Argentina have a good generation.
His players do everything for Messi, we will try to find the key.
Lloris: "The strength of our team is to adapt"
“You have to be ready to suffer at times.
You have to manage the highlights well, it's difficult to always have possession, even if for my taste we suffered too much in the second half against Morocco.
Tomorrow, there will be a game plan to respect, we are still studying Argentina but there are always things for which we are not prepared.
It passes with this feeling of surpassing oneself and of making the round back.
We know that we can play in possession or on the counter-attack and the strength of our team is to adapt.
Lloris: "A very strong state of mind"
“Behind this success, there has always been a very strong state of mind.
There's no reason it can't work tomorrow even if there are still strangers.
With the adrenaline and the excitement we will all be on our feet to surpass ourselves for this last battle.
Lloris: "Want to write our own story"
“I had the privilege of winning this trophy in 2018. Today, I am focused on the present.
We want to write our own story and end it in the best possible way.
The hardest part remains to be done, you have to prepare for a great match, be ready to surpass yourself, despite the pressure and the circumstances with this virus.
Lloris: "The country is behind us, the rest doesn't matter"
“As long as we have the support of our supporters, that the country is behind us, the rest does not matter.
Very few believed in it but we find ourselves in the final four years later and we will give everything to emerge victorious from this final battle.
We know what Messi represents in the history of our sport but it will be France against Argentina.
Lloris: Argentina, "a very well organized team"
“It's a very well organized team, very strong defensively, aggressive on the carrier, which plays very good offensive transitions, following the mistakes of the opponent.
There have always been very great players in the history of Argentina, the symbol Maradona or Lionel Messi.
When you're French, playing a World Cup final is a big event regardless of the opponent, but playing Argentina at this stage of the competition makes things very beautiful.
Lloris has arrived
“I have no more news this morning.
You'll have more info by the next training.
Regarding the virus, we are never prepared for this kind of thing.
We try to prepare in the best possible way.
This does not take away from the concentration and the excitement that we can have.
