Deschamps then spoke about the decline of two key players such as Mbappe And Griezmann: “It was due to several reasons: the end of the season, then the broken nose… Although we reached the semi-final against a team of great quality. I’m not looking for excuses. Although we started the match scoring, Spain had a lot of quality and showed that they are a great team. We lacked verticality, but I can’t blame my players for anything, even if many were not one hundred percent for various reasons.”

For Deschamps, there was a problem of lack of determination: “I had seen it, but we reached the semi-final. Everyone will do their own analysis, but it is clear that we did not have one hundred percent of our potential.”
