A player on the rise on the side of the France team, Randal Kolo Muani is the subject of many praises. But his difficulties in concluding certain occasions did not escape Bixente Lizarazu.
Randal Kolo Muani’s history with the France team is recent. Very recent even since the Eintracht Frankfurt striker had his first selection last September, during a victory against Austria in the Nations League (2-0). Since then, the Bondynois has been able to make his way to the group selected by Didier Deschamps to compete in the 2022 World Cup, and today claims a long-term starting position in attack. And if his debut suggests good things, Kolo Muani still has some perfectible points that he will have to improve.
To the comments of Blues match played Friday night against the Netherlands (4-0), as part of qualifying for Euro 2024, Bixente Lizarazu had a watchful eye on the performance of the former Nantes player. Firstly with a very positive and confident outlook for the future, as he said this Sunday in Telefoot. « He has this mobility, this great speed, this quality of percussion and dribbling, the confidence he has in one-on-one, without any form of hesitation. And it’s true that when you have a Coman-Mbappé-Kolo Muani trio, it goes very quickly, it can switch very easily and it offers a completely different option to the attack of the French team. »
“A downside, the finish”
But the consultant of TF1 still noted a small defect to be corrected as soon as possible. ” The downside is the finish in front of goal. We are not going to talk about the World Cup final. There (against the Netherlands)there were situations where he could have done better, in particular the action of Coman, with this volley (59e). That’s what he still has to work on. But everything else is very strong and has great growth potential for this player. A good omen for the future.
