Didier Deschamps, the France coach, stated his squad will look for a strategy to counter an Argentina player in “scintillating form” named Lionel Messi.
Didier Deschamps, the head coach of France, said he was “immensely happy” after his side advanced to another World Cup final with a 2-0 victory against Morocco on Wednesday. He added that his squad will look for a strategy to counter an Argentina player named Lionel Messi who was in “scintillating form.” After Brazil’s twin triumphs in 1958 and 1962, France hopes to become the first team in 60 years to win back-to-back World Cup championships.
“I’m really proud. It is wonderful to have advanced to the final, but the triumph was not straightforward “Theo Hernandez’s opening goal and substitute Randal Kolo Muani’s late strike at Al Bayt Stadium eliminated the first-ever African or Arab side to go to the World Cup semifinals, according to Deschamps.
“In tough times, we had to dig deep, but I’m incredibly happy and proud of my guys,” the coach said. “We needed a blend of quality, experience, and team spirit.”
The defending champions must get ready to take on an Argentina team that has been motivated by Messi on their path to the championship game and that will be seeking vengeance for losing 4-3 to them in the last 16 four years ago.
Messi has been in outstanding form since the competition began, according to Deschamps.
In 2004, things were different. He used to play as a centre forward, but now he plays in front of two players or slightly behind the striker.
We will make every effort to neutralise Messi’s danger, just as Argentina will make an effort to limit the effect of some of my players, since he appears to be in excellent form and is unquestionably one of the finest players in the world.
