Reading what France players said after their totally unexpected 0-0 draw against Luxembourg, one thing someone notices is that they took it like bigger persons, taking the time, all of them, to say something positive about their lowly opponents.
We had 11 warriors in front of us, and for me, it was beautiful to see because it reminds me a bit of my club
Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann told Canal+. He was one of the players who missed France’s big chances to score, and had one of their two shots on post, from a direct free-kick in the first half.
Two matches in three days, it was difficult especially for me it was, because I was suspended during my last club match. Nothing else to do but continue working
Griezmann added. Hugo Lloris lamented his team’s lack of sharpness ‘in the last metres’.
We had to do more, to be more of a killer in the box, to be a little more thoughtful in the last choices and the last passes, everything happened in the last metres
the French goalkeeper said, with his mind set on October’s matches.
We have to stay calm, there are still two matches to play, including a tough trip to Bulgaria
