In press conference Didier Deschamps rejected the idea of an anti-Cristiano Ronaldo plan, simply because “no one has found it”.
On Sunday evening, the French team will find Portugal in the final of the Euro 2016. The main danger for our Blues will of course be Cristiano Ronaldo, a triple gold ball that dreams of winning the Euro. However, in a press conference, Didier Deschamps rejected any anti-Ronaldo plan: If there was one, someone would have already found it. But no one has. He is a very great player, very athletic in the air game, in particular. He doesn’t just go high, he stays there long enough. His physique allows him. His chocolate squares are for something. “Neutralizing it would be perfect, but being attentive and limiting its influence would already be a good thing.” Understood DD, starting tomorrow, everyone gets to the chocolate squares!
CR7 will have strong to do tomorrow night in front of the French defense but also in his remote duel that opposes him to Antoine Griezmann. Indeed for Lionel Messi, it is the French star who should win the match and the Golden Ball. DD spoke on this duel, although obviously it is not his priority: it’s been 8 years since Cristiano is at the highest level in club and selection. If Griezmann can be part of the candidates it would be a good signal because that would mean that the finale would have gone well. Antoine has this quality, this efficiency that is important to the team … it depends on the collective, recalled Deschamps. No anti-CR7 plan for France but will there be an anti-AG7 plan for Portugal? Answer Sunday night. Do you think DD should set up an anti-CR7 plan?
