Zapping World Eleven Winning pass
Hugo Lloris, the captain of the France team spoke after the meeting at the microphone of La Chaîne L’Equipe. He wanted to praise Olivier Giroud: “Once again, we give him a chance, he scores. He deserves it for his performances with Milan. There is also his past Blue that you can not forget, this is another goal in his record. He is a pure attacker, he revives us. The offensive entertainment was rather interesting. We often put them in difficulty, it rewards Olivier for his efforts“.
He went on to congratulate Côte d’Ivoire and criticized the qualification system for African countries: “It is quite surprising that a team like the Ivory Coast is not qualified for the World Cup. It’s very difficult for African countries to qualify. There is a lot of talent by speed, percussion. They asked us many difficulties in the first half but also in 2nd“.
Finally, he concluded by praising the young generation of the Blues: “It was a pleasant match, we were in difficulty at times, it was the goal too. Even if we were missing important players, we won, it shows a strength of character. The younger generation is showing great things with Aurélien who scores and Matteo who is a passer. I do not know if Aurelian was the best, but it has a large volume in midfield, his doublet with Paul doing well, it’s a continuation of what he showed in the League of Nations against Spain and Monaco. He has a lot of potential. When you have opportunities you have to know how to seize them, the young generation is there, William made a good comeback, Christopher was interesting for his first“.
