After impressing in a key role against Croatia, the Barcelona star believes he has the confidence of his national team manager

According to Antoine Griezmann, Didier Deschamps knows exactly where to play after the Barcelona striker played a pivotal role in France’s hard-fought win over Croatia.

Griezmann scored an excellent goal in the eighth minute, his third international match in 2020, when Les Bleus won 2-1 in Zagreb.

The former Atletico Madrid player was cast in a central position as he worked alongside Anthony Martial and Kylian Mbappe, who scored a late winner after Nikola Vlasic equalized.

While impressing for France, Griezmann has yet to find shape under new Barca boss Ronald Koeman. The 29-year-old mostly plays on the right side and has neither scored nor created a chance in his three La Liga games in 2020/21.

However, he put all club problems in the background to help his country stay ahead of the Nations League clash on Wednesday.

“The coach knows where to take me,” said Griezmann in an interview with Deschamps TF1. “I use this situation, this place, the trust of the coach and my teammates.

“It was a complicated game, not very nice to see, not very nice to play, on difficult ground. We knew how to suffer. The most important thing is to win and to show that we are strong. ”

France’s victory keeps them tied with group A3 leader Portugal. The two nations drew 0-0 on Sunday.

“It was difficult for everyone. We knew we were going to have a battle, ”said Deschamps TF1.

“We did the right thing in the second half. This team has always had character. Just because you won a title in 2018 doesn’t mean you win with a snap of your finger. ”

“If we didn’t manage to score against Portugal, it was because the opponents were good. We had big opponents today, even if we had an excellent start to the game. ”

Deschamps was recently criticized by Alain Giresse for attempting to use Griezmann as No. 10 in a tie against Portugal.

“The problem is, Griezmann has lost his confidence and Didier is playing him to bring it back,” said Giresse The team.

“He played like a 10, but Griezmann is not a 10. We always said if there was one player the game should be about, it should be Giroud.”
