Without taking a pinch of salt, Hugo Lloris gave an interesting analysis of the performance of the France team, which shared the points with Bosnia (2-2) on Wednesday evening.
L’French team 2018 world champion has she progressed in recent years in attack placed against grouped blocks? The answer is categorical: no. The Blues had already stumbled against Hungary, Portugal or Switzerland at the Euro, they were much less good collectively against Bosnia, taking only one point in this 4th game of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. (1-1), Wednesday evening in Strasbourg.
Hugo Lloris, once is not customary, delivered a very interesting analysis in front of the camera of L’Equipe in the spans of the Meinau: ” A little bit of disappointment because we wanted these 3 points, to share a good time with the supporters. Unfortunately, we had to be content with this result, there were match-ups that meant we couldn’t get a better result but, overall, we have to be able to use the ball better. , to create more chances, even if faced with a regrouped team, it remains complicated ».
« We certainly have to improve our positioning ”
Relaunched by journalist Bertrand Latour during this TV interview, the goalkeeper and captain of the Blues argued: ” We must certainly improve in positioning, offensively, that is to say without the ball. It’s up to us to circulate the ball, to find the gaps, to find the spaces. Afterwards, you have to be realistic. When you concede a goal against a team like that, it makes things complicated ».
Indeed, the training of Didier Deschamps was particularly poorly organized against the Bosnians, the fault of the choices of the technical staff. The 4-3-3 failed to find solutions to create quality chances. Kylian Mbappé, on the left wing, was alone in making the differences, when Antoine Griezmann walked along the axis without ever creating any danger, isolating Karim Benzema cutting edge. On the right wing, Jules Koundé was quite alone, while he is a central defender.
