League of Nations: last tricky exam against Croatia, for tired Blues


The French football team is playing its last match of the season tonight. The Blues welcome Croatia at 8:45 p.m. at the Stade de France for the fourth day of the League of Nations. Didier Deschamps’ players will have to do much better than their last outings to go on leave with a light heart.

New and last match for the Blues in the League of Nations. France welcomes Croatia at 8:45 p.m. this Monday at the Stade de France. The match was sold out in front of 80,000 spectators. At first glance, it’s a game that looks like the last day of school. The one where we play cards, where we watch a movie while impatiently waiting for the ringtone. The problem is that the France team, donkey cap of his group at the kickoff, was condemned to a last surprise interview. A good mark this Monday evening in the form of a victory, and the holidays will be sweeter.

On the contrary, a new false step, and the start of the school year will be electric. Captain for the second time in a week, Presnel Kimpembe is perfectly aware of this. “The France team should not be in this last place. It is an obligation to win for this very big match”, he assures. “Winning this big battle is important to us.”

Wrung out blues

Victory yes, but with what forces? The Blues are wrung out after an endless exercise. N’Golo Kanté, Raphaël Varane and Lucas Hernandez have already left the camp. Three players did not participate in the last practice on Sunday evening. Karim Benzema, for his part, trained separately.

Fortunately, Kylian Mbappé, imperial in Vienna on Friday, is operational despite a painful knee. He gritted his teeth and said he was ready to play. If the France team has dull results at the end of the year, it can always count on its best student.
