The French national team has been playing a friendly against its similar team from the Ivory Coast, with a view to the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Things did not go well for ‘Les bleus’, since they lost due to Nicolas Pepé’s goal, but the tie came quickly, thanks to the definition of the experienced Olivier Giroud.

The goal of the African representative had been at 19 ‘and Didier Deschamps made the French team more aggressive, to find parity. Immediately, an attack was built in three quarters of the field, when Kylian Mbappé made a diagonal to the right and attracted the mark of up to three defenders, creating a space on the left wing.

The PSG star, before losing the ball, enabled Kingsley Coman, who noticed the carelessness of the Ivory Coast team. Immediately, the talented attacker made a change of face to the liberated zone, where Theo Hernández appeared: he controlled in freedom and finished off with violence.

The goalkeeper Badra Ali Sangaré responded well to the demand, but the rebound was left at the feet of Paul Pogba, who again enabled the left back who was the protagonist of the previous shot. This time, Theo chose to raise a center towards the small area, where Olivier Giroud prevailed with a header, without major complications.

The precise definition of the scorer decreed the partial 1-1 and unleashed the joy of all the fans of the France team who are present at the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille. Let us remember that ‘Les bleus’ are only waiting for the start of the World Cup, while the Ivory Coast is only looking to prepare, after being left out of the African Qualifiers.
