VIDEO. World Cup: “You need a Griezmann of this level if you want to become world champion”

What team to expect from Tunisia?

Bertrand Volpillac: “It’s common when you’ve qualified after two matches, and the third pool match is almost free, to change the line-up. Almost certainly Didier Deschamps will do it. After that, you have to find a reasonable balance between restoring rhythm for some players, such as Rafael Varane, who just returned from injury, and resting for others. This is the World Cup, we know it is in the middle of the season, so there are players who need to rest, others who need to find a rhythm. For example, we can expect Rafael Varane to play Tunisia on Wednesday and other players who will need a little more rest. I would say, for example, Ousmane Dembele or Antoine Griezmann. »

Will Kylian Mbappe be a player in this World Cup?

B.V.: “Kylian Mbappe is the best player in the World Cup right now. He is in great shape, he is determined, he breaks through all defenses. The question today is whether he will play on Wednesday against Tunisia. In my opinion, there is a good chance that Didier Deschamps will wear it again, if only to use his form to keep up with the pace. This is important, especially since he loves to score goals. He needs to score goals. Also in his personal statistics is considered the best player in the World Cup. Maybe the Ballon d’Or at the end of the year – you never know for sure. »

Antoine Griezmann back as the Blues’ mascot?

BV: “This is an extraordinary renaissance. Antoine Griezmann has been fighting in attack between Barcelona and Atlético for two years now. Didier Deschamps decided to return him to the center of the game, in midfield. He’s extraordinarily good there because he has incredible knowledge of the game, because he has incredible passing quality. He managed to produce a fabulous mutation in a short time. Today, this is the main trump card of the Blues in a new position for him, which he managed to take very quickly. We see that he is able to defend further down the field. He is also able to be in dangerous areas. He could score and offered an assist to Kylian Mbappé. We have to have a Griezmann of this level before the end of the competition if we want to become world champions. »
