By their own admission, the Blues were still looking for a hymn to sing on the days of victory. It looks like they finally found it.
There was the unforgettable I will survive of 1998, there may well be the ” Freed from desire of 2022. Landed in Qatar to defend their title of world champions gleaned four years earlier in Russia, the players of The french team had several objectives at the start of the competition. Athletes of course, with desires for victory already materialized with two successes in two games, but also annexes and music. What song to sing in the locker room in the event of a won match? Hugo Lloris and his family have decided.
The images broadcast this Sunday by Telefoot show Didier Deschamps’ men celebrating their victory against Denmark (2-1). All together, the players of the France team sing the refrain of ” Freed from desire“, hit by the group Gala dating from 1997. A song that regularly comes up in football stadiums, as is once again the case this year in Qatar, and which the Blues have therefore decided to make their own.
All behind the scenes of the qualification of the Blues are this morning in TELEFOOT! ???

It remains to be seen whether this song will continue to be covered with each tricolor success and whether it will benefit from the same (new) hour of glory as that of the tube sung by Gloria Gaynor. This will require France to achieve a double which, to date, is still a very distant goal.
