Poland. Didier Deschamps: “We have to appreciate what we have done”

Poor performance for the France team. The Blues were held in check by an already eliminated Poland, this Tuesday, June 25 at the BVB Stadion in Dortmund, as part of the third day of the group stage of Euro 2024 (1-1). Consequence: they finished in second place in their group even though a victory would have allowed them to finish in first place since, at the same time, Austria dominated the Netherlands.

Robert Lewandowski, from the penalty spot, responded to Kylian Mbappé’s opener in the same way. The French team will face the second in Group E on Monday July 1 in Düsseldorf (6 p.m.).

We did the right thing, we had chances. We have to appreciate what we have done. The first objective has been achieved, even if we don’t have the place we wanted. Regrets ? We did what we could do. We could have done better in terms of efficiency, even if the goalkeeper made some good saves. We weren’t able to take shelter. »

“The evening is frustrating, we didn’t put in enough to win tonightcontinued Adrien Rabiot. We had everything between our feet and we didn’t do enough. The goalkeeper was good, we had good opposition, but we have to do a lot better to score, we still have this efficiency problem. We did not achieve the goal of first place. »

“It remains a disappointment for everyone, we wanted to finish first in this group. But we did the most important thing: ensure qualification.”declared Eduardo Camavinga in the mixed zone. “It’s frustrating, we know that we really should have won this match, regretted Bradley Barcola. We had the keys in hand. At 1-0, we should have scored this second goal. I think we did a little too much management. It’s a shame. We will continue to work…”
