Jack87 news today, asianbookie France will be heartbroken after losing the World Cup final to Argentina on penalties, but Kylian Mbappe’s talent and the depth of talent in his squad bode well for the future.
France started the boda8 World Cup without Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema, striker Christopher Nkunku, midfielders N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba and played in the first game. The game was without left-back Lucas Hernandez, but still made it to the final, which they lost 4-2 on penalties following a spectacular 3-3 draw.
Mbappe, who turned 24 on Tuesday, scored all three of France’s goals, taking his tally from two to 12 at the World Cup.
All of his goals on Sunday came after coach Didier Deschamps sent Randall Kolo-Mouani (24), Marcus Thuram (25), Eduardo Camavinga (20) and Kingsley Coman (26) later.
“Potentially, this French team has an important talent pool,” Deschamps said.
“We had a lot of inexperienced players before this tournament, but they proved they can play at the highest level. There are others who are not here, boda8 malaysia but they will all be able to play in the next tournament.
“We always need experienced leaders to develop young players, but the reservoir is huge.”
Deschamps stressed, however, that collective mentality – which is unquestionable in Qatar – is as important as talent.
“Now we have to build a team so that on top of the quality of the players, we have the mentality,” he explained.
“I wasn’t worried before the game, and I’m not worried now.”
France may be counting on 31-year-old Antoine Griezmann to link generations.
“Some players were in the Euro 2016 final, won the 2018 World Cup and they bring their experience. Maturity is important,” Deschamps said.
“But if there is a good balance, some young players will improve their level as some players did four years ago and some have done in this World Cup.”
Deschamps will also be pleased with the consistency of midfielders Aurelien Tchouameni and Adrien Rabiot and centre-backs Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konate.
Goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris says France are in a transition phase.
“No words can assuage our pain, boda8 thai but I think this game will serve our future,” he said.
“It was a relay race between a generation nearing the end of his career and a new generation led by Kylian, who showed in the Championship and in the final what a leader he could be.
“We have to keep this French team at this level, with the best players on the world and European stage.”
The French are heartbroken but the future looks bright
