Never two without three ? On September 8, two years after the world coronation, the Blues had found Croatia at the Stade de France. They had inflicted the same correction (4-2) on them as in the 2018 World Cup final. Abused in the first period, although ahead at the break (2-1), Didier Deschamps’ men had ended up s ‘impose thanks to a relentless offensive realism. This Wednesday (at 8:45 p.m., live on TF1 and live commented on LCI), the world champions travel to Zagreb to bounce back, after playing with the brake during the sad draw against Portugal (0-0) on Sunday.

Co-leader of Group 3 with Portugal, which for its part receives Sweden without Cristiano Ronaldo, tested positive for Covid-19, the French team is looking for energy and inspiration. Like Antoine Griezmann, appeared extinct during his last outings with the tricolor jersey. “Like any player, there are ups and downs. He is in a slightly more complicated offensive period. But I see a player ready to defend, to make efforts for his teammates, on that we can not question him“, commented the captain of the Blues Hugo Lloris, who called on his partners to”help him“.

Little flourished since his arrival in Barcelona in the summer of 2019, “Grizou” can count on the unwavering support of his teammates and his coach. “In 81 selections (82 after Portugal, editor’s note), it’s 32 goals, 21 assists, that speaks volumes. It will not guarantee him anything but I know his quality and what he is able to give to the team“, recalled” DD “, in solidarity with his player. The former captain of the Blues, who won in the same Maksimir stadium twenty years ago (2-0 friendly victory, May 28, 2000), knows that in order to bring something back from Zagreb, he will have to rekindle the flame of his playing master.

And that will not be too much for the world champions, awaited with firm footing by 7000 Croatian supporters, the maximum level set in these times of pandemic, in the Maksimir stadium. “QIf there are lots of people, that’s pretty good for the players. If they are Croats, obviously it’s better for Croatia, but we’ll see that on the bright side.“, recognized Deschamps.”Sure there will be a bit of hostility“, added goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.”But it will do good for the French players to surpass themselves through adversity to win this match.“To find the path to victory, they will have to do violence to themselves.
