The Blues begin their tenth day in Doha territory. They hope to stay there until December 18, the day of the final. Meanwhile, Didier Deschamps’ men are calmly projecting themselves into the shock of Group D, where on Saturday (at 18:00 in France) they will face Denmark.
Confirmation of the day
The tips received the day before should be taken seriously. If Didier Deschamps has a reserve line at left-back, that role seems to be shifting to Eduardo Camavinga. During a rehearsal of preferential ball schemes, the former Rennes player at Real Madrid today was used in the left lane to increase the number of centers. Not exactly a habit for this training midfielder, even if he was quite young he could already occupy the position of a left winger. Recall that after the injury of Lucas Hernandez, his brother is the only professional left-back in the group.
question of the day
Kingsley Coman shortened his session, but this is a simple precaution. A slight discomfort in the hip prompted the staff to adjust their work schedule. The 26-year-old from Munich took part in a warm-up session with the rest of his teammates before leaving the pitch with PE coach Cyril Moin. Nothing serious for someone who was entitled to 20 minutes of play with Australia. He should also resume training as usual this Friday.
Exercise of the day
Education open to the media is never the most instructive. We will still remember this heading exercise at the beginning of the session. Two on two, deputy Guy Stephan ordered the Blues to exchange the ball for as long as possible. Strongest ? Without a doubt, the two Milanese Theo Hernandez and Olivier Giroud. The funniest? Of course, Camavinga and Griezmann. They also excelled in this area, but, in addition, they had the idea to mix the pleasant with the useful. The Blues’ new midfielder was constantly looking to catch the Madrid midfielder by headbutting him horizontally. Much to Kama’s delight, it’s fun.
Statement of the Day: “Ah, okay? »
Yes, we have chosen this expression. Two words and a question mark. So did Markus Thuram, who was very surprised to be asked the reason for his laconic answers during his press conference. Fear of dumplings, of a phrase taken out of context and crushed in the washing machine of controversy? None of that, the Bundesliga striker replied, all in the second degree. “I can go longer,” he continued. I see you writing, I just want to make it easier for you, that’s all. »
