The manager of the France national football team, Didier Deschamps, is very happy with the kind of approach his team has shown in the first couple of matches in the ongoing FIFA World Cup, but, he has made it clear that he doesn’t want to get too far ahead of himself and thus, the only thing that is in his head at the moment is the game against Ecuador which would be the last group game for the Les Blues.
France has dominated in both their World Cup matches so far. In their first match against Honduras which was played on 16th of June, they had won easily by 3-0 and they did the same in their second match against Switzerland which took place yesterday. They played even better against the Swiss team and ended up winning by 5-2.
All the big French players including Karim Benzema and Olivier Giroud managed to find the back of the net in that game against Switzerland and that’s a good sign for Deschamps. As a manager, you want all you big guns ready to fire in the knockouts.
Although with these two wins, France has already made it to the knockouts, but, they would not want their intensity and aggression to reduce even one bit in their next game against Ecuador. They would want to pull off a good result in that match as well and then go into the next round with a winning rhythm.
After the match against Switzerland, when Deschamps was asked if his side is the favourite to lift the trophy now, the 45-year old said, “I would not say so at this point of time. These are early days. These two matches have been good, but, there’s a lot remaining in the tournament.”
