Didier DESCHAMPS: This isn’t the same Argentina we played four years ago
The head coach of the French national team Didier Deschamps expressed his opinion about Argentina’s team, which he will be in the World Cup final on Sunday, December 18.
This team has a really good player and the Messi makes the difference. We’re fighting. Argentina is a strong nation, but it is a good nation.
Messi has been great since the start of the tournament. It was just four years ago. He started the match with no chance of getting past us. He replaced himself with a striker who had a hand. He’s the striker. Messi has a lot of freedom. He often meets a ball and looks like he’s in extreme shape.
Messi is one of the world’s best performers. We should try to limit what it is like to be able to do so. They will do it with some of my players. But that isn’t the Argentina we played four years ago, said Deschamps.
At the World Cup in 2018 the French team defeated Argentina (44:3) in the final match between the 4 and 8 o’clock.
