France beaten in the final: "By losing 2-0, it would not have been the same regrets", assures Deschamps


This Sunday, after the defeat on penalties for the French team against Argentina (3-3, 4 pens to 2), the coach delivered his ana

Didier Deschamps appeared less than an hour after the end of the lost match against Argentina (3-3, 4 tabs to 2) to comment on the loss of the title of world champion, acquired in 2018. The white voice , low flow, he gave his first impressions, all to his logical disappointment.

How do you feel after this setback?


There are these big first 60 minutes where there was no match because we were less well.

We came back from nowhere by reversing a compromised situation, which gives us even more regret.

We have a World Cup ball at the last second.

If we lose 2-0 or 3-0, these are not the same regrets.

I congratulate this Argentinian team which has put in a lot of craftiness but I don't want people to think that I am trying to diminish its victory.

We brush against something we could have touched.

There are several reasons that led us to be less well.

We had less energy on several important players, for different reasons.

But the entry of young players was good, they had freshness and quality.

We did what was necessary to give ourselves the right to hope.

But the dream did not materialize.

Do you want to continue at the head of the Blues?

I had other questions before on this subject.

I am very sad, like my staff.

I will not give an answer this evening and I would not have given it either in the event of the opposite result.

I will have an appointment with my president at the beginning of the year and you will know it.

Is it the virus that explains this start of the meeting?

The entire group was subject to vigilance.

Was there a physical or psychological impact, I don't have the answer.

There are other things like less recovery day.

Still, there was no match for an hour.

Why did you make very rapid changes?

We lacked freshness.

I wanted it to be different.

We must not focus on Ousmane (Dembélé) and Olivier (Giroud), I saw them less well when they helped us to be there.

We didn't have all our athletic abilities and that happens to us against a team that makes a lot of impact.

We weren't playing a World Cup final.

I didn't have that impression.

But in football, everything goes very quickly, everything can be reversed, I often tell my players and they have once again been able to see it.

What do you think of arbitration?

I will be careful what I say.

He was as he was.

You are there to judge.

It could have been worse, it could have been better.

Decisions are subject to discussion.

Until then, Argentina had not been unhappy in this area and it continued.

But above all, I don't want to take away the merit from Argentina because we are not on the right side.

A word on the performance of Kylian Mbappé, author of a hat-trick?

There were quite a few records in the tournament.

Kylian left his mark on this final, but not with the result he wanted.

He was very sad at the end, like all the players.

What is the future of this generation?

Potentially, the France team has a very large reservoir.

They have proven despite the lack of international experience that they have the level.

There will always be a need for frames.

The breeding ground for the quality of French players is very important.

There is after a group to train and shape for the mindset.

I wasn't worried before and I won't be worried now.

There was the Euro 2016 final, the 2018 title, the 2021 Nations League. There are a lot of players present in all these competitions.

There is an age of maturity for each player, which does not prevent a balance with young people who have risen to the level.
