A few days before playing its first match of the 2022 World Cup against Australia, the French team is in uncertainty because of the many injuries to be deplored. For Youri Djorkaeff, this is not necessarily bad news for the Blues.
N’Golo Kanté, Presnel Kimpembe, Paul Pogba and now Christopher Nkunku. The French team has suffered several major withdrawals. Add to all that, the physical poor shape of Varane and Benzema and you have a French team in full doubt with the pressure of the status of reigning world champion. If France has an affordable group with Australia, Tunisia and still the amazing Denmark, a pessimistic atmosphere reigns around the French team. Like in 1998 when France did not start as favorites but managed to create a feat at home by winning the World Cup. Youri Djorkaeff, present during this epic, believes that these many disappointments could benefit the group of Didier Deschamps.
The French team better in adversity?
“We ask ourselves a lot of questions, there are doubts around the France team and that’s normal. But we have never been better than in adversity. This is the pretext to unite the group very quickly. In 1998, our game and the coach were attacked and that united us. said the Snake in remarks relayed by AFP. The former PSG striker imagines France will be stronger in adversity. It remains to be seen whether the world champion’s analysis will prove to be correct during this competition. The Blues will enter this world on Tuesday, November 22 against the Socceroos, like four years ago. In Russia, the French team had a hard time winning against Australia and for this revenge in Qatar, the Habs will once again have to be wary and remain united despite the injuries.
