How to explain to find the Blues Friday in the Netherlands (2-0) in the League of Nations? With the excellent Dutch performance first, but also by the absence of weight, lack of commitment and suspicious choices of Didier Deschamps.
The French resignation team to shoot on Tuesday will have to be friendly against Uruguay in the Stade de France (21:00).
. Without Pogba …
With the central Paul Pogba and the defendants Samuel Umtiti and Lucas Hernandez, "we had many missing players that were important to us and that's what we have seen," said Antoine Griezmann. the meeting in Rotterdam.
In general, their sponsors Steven Nzonzi, Presnel Kimpembe and Lucas Digne lost their game. Nzonzi, which triggered the first Dutch goal by losing its defensive interference, Roma MP has only been resting since the start of the season. It was unambiguous, challenging in the commitment to start the game, found his marks and that his agreement with Kimpembe, which was also spent by the vitality of the Netherlands, was far from the best.
Normally, the trainer did not live on individual failures. "I do not have a special message for Steven (Nzonzi), it's part of a" and "combination, the whole team performance is not inadequate to hope to have a positive result."
Deschamps did not want to take a focus behind the avalanche of packages that affected the Blues. "It's a difficult time for us but I do not want to use it as an excuse, with the players there, we have to be able to do better," he said.
. Post-World Decompression?
The Blues have suffered back after the World Cup? It seems that the technician did not believe that it was too much and in particular indicated his team's "lack of commitment" in two, while his Blue Cup Blues characteristic of protective consent and security.

Certainly, Deschamps did not have a great choice in Pogba's absence but it might have tried to launch Lyon Tanguy Ndombele, which shares with "Pogboum" this ability to break the opposing lines. Or settle for a Kante-Matuidi couple, to align an offensive quartet in the forefront.
